Description

Faye Schulman was a partisan fighter in Eastern Europe during WW2. When her village was murdered, she was spared by the Nazis as a “useful Jew” because she was a photographer. After fleeing to a partisan group, and managing to retrieve her camera and processing materials, she took the only known photos of partisan life during the war. After the war she emigrated to Canada with her husband.

In this image she has both her camera and a rifle. Out of the rifle sprouts olive leaves. Camera lens imagery appears throughout the piece, including behind Schulman, and at the top right corner. The Yiddish around her is a verse from a wartime song called “Daughters of Chuvashia,” about woman partisans: “We’re alive! And we will survive no matter what/Your bleary end will be on Haman’s tree!/The Jewish people live on!” Schulman’s gaze is unflinching – she captured triumphs and atrocities with her lens. At the bottom left is the “Ner Tamid Hechsher”; the top right says “Besiyata Dishmaya.”
