Sketch of Jack Kagan, a Holocaust survivor whose story is shared in Doreen Rappaport's fantastic "Beyond Courage". I did the sketch of Jack while listening to Doreen give a lecture on her work. Doreen gave her presentation old-school fashion- not a lot of powerpoint, just a heck of a lot of power coming from the stories she shared, her voice and method of story telling. Really enjoyed her talk. This is a picture of Jack as he made his first escape from the Novogrudok labor camp. You'll find a quick interview with Jack and Doreen below which shares more of Jack's courageous story. Also, I found Jack's picture on this link, which I hadn't seen before doing the drawing.
