Touching, moving, inspiring!

The artist and her sand bring forth visceral meaning to Aushwitz and the Holocaust???

As I'm watching the video crying the candle for the 6 million is glowing. My dear brothers and sisters may you rest in peace for eternity.

Music used in Holocaust Sand Art Video

Do you know the name of the piece of music used in the "Holocaust Sand Art Video" by Illana Yahav?

It is called, the “The Theme from Schindler's List”. John Williams composed the score and the violin was played by Itzhak Perlman. Steven Spielberg directed the film in 1993.
