Portrait assignment for Time

ASSIGNMENT FOR TIME MAGAZINE
I was assigned to portray Auschwitz survivor Irene Weiss for Time Magazine when she was a witness in a trial in Detmold in Germany. More than 70 years after World War II, the prosecution of a 94-year-old former SS guard renews questions about how to assign blame for the Holocaust.
