Portrait is an artistic book which uniquely tells the true story of Rita Kasimow Brown's experience of hiding in an underground pit from the Nazi death hunt.
At once both horrifying and healing, Rita's personal account takes the reader on an inner journey with art and therapeutic creativity. Imagination and creativity have played a critical role throughout Rita's life, in her work as a psychologist, art therapist, and artist. Through dream interpretation and engaging in dialogue with dream figures based on Jung's method of active imagination, Rita demonstrates powerful techniques for coping with personal trauma. Also included in the book are full-color reproductions of twelve of Rita's fine art paintings.

About The Author
Rita Kasimow Brown was born in Turmont, Poland.
When the Jewish persecution began, her family spent many months in the Dryswiaty ghetto, doing forced labor.
Upon excaping from the ghetto the family searched for refuge, and ultimately found the Grub- a narrow underground pit under the stable of a Christian family, where they hid for twenty-two long months.
After the liberation, the Kasimow family moved to Germany and in 1949 they arrived in New York. Rita received several academic degrees in the USA and in Israel. In 1971, Rita and her two children made aliyah to Israel, where she currently resides. Throughout her life, Rita has used art and imagination to heal the soul and enrich it.
