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.
