About the cover:
Cover illustration by Oscar Cahén (via The Cahén Archives)
Oscar Cahén (1916–1956) narrowly escaped from Prague in 1939 and arrived in Canada as a Jewish refugee in 1940 where he was interned as an “enemy alien.” He became a nationally celebrated illustrator and abstract painter. In 1953, he co-founded the artists’ group Painters Eleven. Oscar Cahén’s works can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario, among others. Online archives on Cahén’s life and work can be found at www.oscarcahen.com.
The illustration shown here was created for a story about emigration from post-war Europe by Richard D. McMillan (Maclean’s Magazine, August 15, 1947). Reproduced with permission.
