The Art of the Question  

"Walled In", 2008

Here we see shades of the film Hitler loved so well: Fritz Lang’s futuristic silent film Metropolis where workers’ bodies are ground into dust and made into cement to build and operate the city that enslaves them. Future fantasy becomes past fact as we witness children becoming the fungible raw materials needed for fuel and defense in the Nazi extermination campaign.

—Danna Nolan Fewell and Gary A Phillips, Icon of Loss: The Haunting Child of Samuel Bak
