“It’s a subject filled with so much horror and sadness few artists can bear to address it. The atrocities that occurred in the concentration camps of Germany are read about in school, whispered by grandparents to their children, memorialized in museums, but rarely do we have a chance to personally face the victims of the Holocaust. Hannah Stahl’s “Index: The Women of Auschwitz” changes that, presenting viewers with portraits of female prisoners just before their executions. The portraits are inspired by photographs Stahl encountered while visiting Auschwitz, though her paintings are not as much accurate representations as haunting tributes to brave and innocent women whose lives were so tragically lost.”                                    -The Huffington Post
