Auschwitz -Where is my family?

As I started this work, my thoughts were about  the survivor interviewed in the wonderful documentary "Paper Clips."  When he asked one of the Nazi guards where his mother and sister were taken, the guard looked at the smoke above the crematoriums and smiled. 

The final composition has the serenity of what the public sees today, a landscape of beauty and yet its memory are those of people buried below the ground.
