Ed Carter-Edwards puts an arm around Romanian born holocaust survivor artist Gigi McKendric (82).
Gigi McKendric is an accomplished artist in metals, plaster, mechanized motion of sculptures and lights.The consistent theme that informs McKendric's body of work is the belief that no matter how terrible the challenge – the spirit survives.
Mr. Carter-Edwards, a veteran of World War II, was the driving force behind the recent CBC special called the "Lucky Ones: Allied Airmen and Buchenwald".
