Contrary to the actions of the Unitied States Judicial System there is a God of Justice. Indeed, all justice derives from Him who is holy. That such are not afraid only underscores the darkness of a sinful heart.

The joy and hope of His justice is that one day He will make all things right to the degree that such injustice will become a fading memory while the wicked are tormented in hell.

Therefore thus says the Lord God: My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; my servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; my servants shall rejoice, but you shall be put to shame; my servants shall sing for gladness of heart, but you shall cry out for pain of heart, and shall wail for anguish of spirit.

You shall leave your name to my chosen to use as a curse, and the Lord God will put you to death; but to his servants he will give a different name.

Then whoever invokes a blessing in the land shall bless by the God of faithfulness, and whoever takes an oath in the land shall swear by the God of faithfulness; because the former troubles are forgotten and are hidden from my sight.

For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.

But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.

I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be heard in it, or the cry of distress.
Isaiah 65:13-19

The Edut Project is a physical and online museum exhibition of life-sized paintings and intimate video conversations of Holocaust survivors. The project strives to honor each survivor’s story.

In 2014, David Kassan turned his attention to painting and documenting Survivors of the Holocaust, with the development of the Edut project — edut being Hebrew for “living witnesses” — as a way of connecting with his grandfather’s traumatic history of escaping ethnic cleansing on the border of Romania and Ukraine to come to America in 1917.

The purposes of the project are manifold. It aims to document firsthand the stories of the ever-shrinking number of survivors of the Holocaust, or Shoah. By exploring the entire lives of these survivors, from before World War II to the present day, it tells stories of perseverance and of life in America from the postwar period to the 21st century.
