Hatikvah means Hope. It is the national anthem of The State of Israel.
In Hatikvah the survivors of the Holocaust are turned into living Israeli figures. By using the negative image on the bottom, the barely alive emaciated figures from above, have been turned into…soldiers, farmers, hasidim, students, a female figure holding a baby, a tank, and architecture including the Western Wall.
Out of the despair and horror of the Holocaust The State of Israel was created.
