Toby Knobel Fluek, Artist

You really must visit the website of this wonderful artist who has created visual expressions of her life growing up in Poland. From the website:
Toby Knobel Fluek was born Czernica, Poland, near Lvov. She and her family were driven out by the German invasion and forced into the ghetto in the town of Brody. She survived the Holocaust, came to the United States in 1949 and now lives in New York. Her paintings of her childhood are unique, as they provide not only a chronology of daily life in her village, but also some remarkable Jewish "still life" paintings of objects that are unique as Holocaust memories.
You can find this artist's work here.
