LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Oct. 12 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Gallery of Historical Figures announces “The Holocaust,” a realistic sculpture by artist G. S. Stuart pays homage to the millions of victims slain in the death camps of World War II. After extensive research, Stuart set a working prisoner in Auschwitz and then carefully modeled the tableau in quarter life size.

Before entering a private collection in New York, “The Holocaust” will be on public exhibit until November 15 at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, call (323) 651-3704 or visit http://www.lamoth.org. On November 15, the artist will describe his work in a multimedia presentation at 6:30 p.m., following a 5:30 p.m. members-only reception.

“This compassionate sculpture captures the suffering of concentration camp prisoners. It reaches out to our Museum visitors in a profoundly evocative way,” said Mark Rothman, Executive Director of the Museum. “We are thrilled to give it a temporary home.”
