JOHANNESBURG – A unique collection by a Jewish artist who survived the gulags during the Holocaust years is headed to South Africa.

The paintings and sketches of David Labkovski are currently on display in the US, thanks to efforts by his niece, Cape Town native Leora Raikin.

She now lives in Los Angeles, where eNCA's Patrice Howard caught up with her to explore how Labkovski's art is teaching a new generation about the Holocaust.
