Through words, images, and the brush, I pour out my restless spirit of ceaseless reflection and search. I connect with emotion to flow freely and create from the essence of my being without the need for approval.

In that fullness, I encounter the purest and most genuine aspect of my individuality in an unlimited realm of imagination.

Hasta que estés en su lugar: Huellas del Holocausto Judío en la memoria de Mónica Wartenberger, hija de sobrevivientes.

In this touching and introspective work, Ilana Lamstein delves into the memory of Mónica Wartenberger, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, exploring the indelible traces of the Jewish Holocaust. The book serves as a testament to resilience, offering a profound reflection on the enduring impact of one of history's darkest chapters.

I am driven to rescue personal stories and collective memory that bring me closer to a greater understanding of the human being and its different realities.

As the soul is laid bare, the true essence of humanity emerges, stripped of all pretenses.

The barrier of prejudice dissipates, giving way to empathy as a fundamental value for a more compassionate world.
