Poet Rutha Rosen thoughts on sculptor David Liknaitsky’s sculpture “Requiem” which stands in front of the Cape Town Holocaust & Genocide Centre
This Haunting sculpture takes us back to the inhumanity of our not Too distant past, and serves, in its elegant way, to remind us of that which cannot be forgotten. The figures in the foreground, the men, women and children, await their fate that the restless spirits, who lurk between the walls of the concentration camps and the gas chambers, know only too well. And we as observers become restless too – we know the fate of those who are waiting. Yet the looming towers, that stand bold and strong, draw us back into the present As monuments to our resolute commitment – Never Again!
