The story behind Book of Life by artist David Kracov

Despite the dreamy and cheerful nature of Book of Life by artist David Kracov, this piece hides a deeper meaning.

Kracov conceived The Book of Life as an homage to Rabbi Yossi Raichik, director of a charity organization for children victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Each of the 2547 hand-painted butterflies represents the children who survived Chernobyl's nuclear disaster and who, thanks to the charity, had the possibility of a new life.

In addition, the pages of the book are filled with poems, pieces of diaries, and songs, written by children who died in Auschwitz. Among them, the main poem is The Butterfly, by Pavel Friedmann, written when he was just thirteen.
