The artist JODU dedicated the seven and a half years to the creation and completion of his immense art work "6 000 000". With his contemporary masterpiece of the century, the artist wishes to bring the pictorial dimension of 6 million people becoming the victims of the Holocaust to the eyes of the whole world. It took altogether almost 7,5 years for JODU to realize this painting in order to make every single gallery visitor aware in an impressive and thoughtful manner of what inconceivable crime was committed against these people and their relatives.
Artistically and personally, the painter created with this work a historical memorial for humanity to keep watch, so this may never happen again.
