This imagine is so moving because it has strong ties to the holocaust. I chose this sculpture because of that fact, specifically because I was in Paris this summer studying abroad. I took a holocaust class, and was able to learn so much about the Shoah, which is the common term accepted in the Jewish community for the holocaust. This image is moving because it shows the horrors of the Shoah, but the man standing gives the viewer hope. It also foreshadows the fact that the Germans did not succeed with  the Shoah and that the allied forces prevailed.
