A painting by artist Sophia Kalski entitled "Slice of Bread."

The artist writes "Lwow ghetto in the winter of 1943. During one of the visits with a friend of my father in the ghetto, I didn't eat anything on this particular day and probably they saw the hunger in my face because my father's friend asked me if I ate something that day, and I lied and said yes. He had one thin slice of bread that he smuggled from forced labor with the Germans, that he wanted to divide the slice of bread into two. But I did not agree, because there was nothing to divide. And I hoped that the next day that I would get something to eat."
