Most widely held works by Samuel Bak
Scrolls of testimony by Abba Kovner( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scrolls of Testimony is a profoundly moving chronicle of the Holocaust. The author, award-winning Israeli writer Abba Kovner, intended this book as a quasi-liturgical account of the greatest tragedy to befall the Jewish people, and he wrote it in the Jewish tradition of megillot, or scrolls. Taken together, the pages are reminiscent of the Talmud, with the central text surrounded by notes and excerpts of poetry and prose."

The game continues : chess in the art of Samuel Bak by Lawrence L Langer( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of The Game Continues provide stimulating commentary on the richness and the limits of metaphor in art. Samuel Bak's provocative chess-inspired landscapes illuminate the waste of war in a profaned world, and its impact on the human spirit. Peopled by pawns and knights, rooks and bishops, kings and queens, Bak's vision of conflict from the ancient to the modern era deflates romantic notions of heroic combat. His shattered chessboards rise dramatically out of a barren terrain, recording a decline in human majesty even as he invites us to reconstrue more fruitful imaginings." "The Game Continues reproduces in full color a new series of 52 chess paintings by Bak. Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer guides and enriches our understanding of this unusual artist's complex vision."--Jacket

Icon of loss : the haunting child of Samuel Bak by Danna Nolan Fewell( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this examination of Samuel Bak's most recent collection of paintings inspired by the little boy from the famous Stroop Report photo taken in the Warsaw Ghetto in April 1943. Gary A. Phillips and Danna Nolan Fewell consider the historical and visual implications of this iconic image and its contemporary evocations. A survivor of the Vilna liquidation and a child prodigy whose first exhibition was held in the Vilna Ghetto at age nine, Bak weaves together personal history and Jewish history to articulate an iconography of his Holocaust experience. Bak's art preserves memory of the twentieth-century ruination of Jewish life and culture by way of an artistic passion and precision that stubbornly announces the creativity of the human spirit."--Jacket
