In “A Story of Rose’s,” Larry Volk tells the story of his mother, Rosette Volk, a Holocaust survivor. He explores his mother’s life experiences during and after the Holocaust as an act of remembrance and investigation.
Volk explains, “As an artist I am interested in personal narratives, not as ends unto themselves but rather, as vehicles for larger ideas that extend beyond the life of a particular individual. The exploration of my mother’s complex story finds identity, loss, adaptation and rebuilding.”
