Jewish artist living in Montreal, Yehouda Chaki never met his grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins – they were all killed in Auschwitz. His installation, Mi Makir, features indistinct portraits of victims who died in concentration camps, and sculptures made with books serve as reminders of the infamous burnings of books by Jewish, liberal and leftist authors by Nazi student groups. If haunting, this installation is deeply personal for the artist and a generation of Jews, and others, whose families were killed in the Holocaust, its significance and poignancy resonates with all of humanity. An exhibition organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
