While in hiding, he made simple line drawings of biblical verses until he was captured and interred in the Beanne le Rolande camp. After the war, he expanded his drawings into paintings and produced the 62 plates in this portfolio. Gift of Professor Jack M. Sasson, the Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Judaica and Biblical Studies.
