Thank you for this piece, when I was a little girl, like 4 , I drew swastikas on my dresser. I had no idea what they meant and drew them anyways because I thought they were fun to draw 😞.

My mother seen this and I got the spanking of my life and she made me watch a documentary on the holocaust so I truly understood why that symbol was so evil.

It was a lesson well learned and I never drew anything again without knowing the reason behind it. What my mom and your grandfather did was a gift.

Thank God they did it and let us know how wrong we were. Excellent and honest piece.
