Lego Concentration Camp

This was on display at the MOCAK contemporary art museum in Krakow.  Apparently it was done with cooperation from Lego.

The holocaust is such a hard thing to understand on a personal level; the scale is just too big.  Different approaches can help make the problem relatable for different people.  The combination of mass produced children’s toys and assembly-line genocide was surprisingly powerful to me.
