"Life in the ghetto further broke my spirits, and I am unable to return to myself. I paint a little, and I sketch what one finds here. But I cannot return to myself."
From: Confession, an artistic menifesto by Jacob Lifschitz ,which was buried along with his artworks in the ghetto, 6.3.1944, Yad Vashem
