  2. 2. Welcome to VISION Keeping the Spirit Alive ! Does Art always have to be beautiful? Is its only purpose to serve the audience with a joyful experience of awe and magnificence or can it also be used by the artists as another language to express a variety of difficult emotions? This may infinitely differ for different eyes of the beholder, but all can agree that art comes from the heart in order to touch the heart. If we're lucky something is presented in such a unique way as to change hearts, minds and eyes. ! That is exactly what Cole Thompson has done in his body of work ‘Auschwitz – Birkenau’. This presentation came from the depths of the heart to convey the heights of the spirit of those who have lived and died in Auschwitz –Birkenau. During the Second World War Winston Churchill’s advisors urged him to cut down on the budget allocated to the arts to divert more funding into the security war efforts. Churchill’s answer was: “Then what are we fighting for?” In honor of all those that have lived and died in the Nazi death camps, we dedicate this issue. ! What comes from the heart speaks to the heart - Jewish aphorism ! Sincerely, ! Joel, Sharon, Armand and Daniel The Vision Explorers Team
