  The Expulsion and the Holocaust          
 

The Holocaust is a continuation of the Expulsion from Spain, both inescapable for Jews. Abarbanel who tried to negotiate with Ferdinand and Isabella is reincarnated in Rumkovski - the German appointed Head of the Lodz Ghetto. The bridge connecting two parts of the Ghetto is spanned over a present-day Tel Aviv cityscape. Deportation trains travel up Jerusalem's center and along Bronx streets. The Spanish Queen and an Inquisition victim wait on the platforms. History is compressed and tragedies are fused on the canvas.
