Lawrence L. Langer, essay and commentary

“Samuel Bak is arguably one of the two or three most important artists dealing with the Holocaust as an integral part of his work. On any list of five his name would appear. Lawrence Langer is one of the two or three most significant critics of the Holocaust. On any list of five, his name would also appear. When Langer takes his pen to Bak's canvas, the results are significant… When master engages master and both engage an event so central to their beings and more powerful than both, the results are important.” —Michael Berenbaum
