Nameless Mass Graves

Two meditations from the "The New Union Prayer Book--For the Days of Awe" helped inspire this work:

"How many there are who rest in nameless graves,
and now many who's ashes were blown away by the winds
to every corner of the earth!"

"...The Jewish dream and the reality are ravished,
They die together.
Your witnesses are sleeping:
Infants, women,
Young men, old.
Even the Thirty-six,
Your saints, pillars of Your world,
Have fallen into a dead, an everlasting sleep."
