A Great Artist Captures History

Kathe Kollwitz's works entered public domain recently, she has been dead for 70 years.  Her life and works were incredible records of the world in which she lived.  Hunger, sorrow, despair, and aftermath of war, and living in a land that twice lost in war, etched its pain upon her work.  So often people forget that war paints sorrow upon the soul on both sides of war, innocent and guilty, civilian and soldier.
