A box was delivered today to me by courier. The gift was given to me by my husband’s 2nd cousin, Carlo H. Joseph III. The bronze piece was sculpted by hand (unknown how many were cast from his original wax sculpture) by my Great Grandfather, Louis Rosenthal
I was blown away & wish to shout from the roof tops at Carlo’s generosity & thoughtfulness. He included a brief note, “I had to get this for you to have for future generations so they never forget the millions that suffered & died.”
The last image is a part of my family tree…beside my name is my Great Aunt, her husband & their six children…who died during the holocaust. This piece was created in 1938. This piece now sits above my fireplace to be passed onto my children, so they never forget.
I will make sure they never forget who gifted us this treasure.
Thank you, Carlo.
