„The image of the city and the obliterated streets of Rotterdam haunted me. When I returned to Paris, I made a draft model for a statue in clay which attempted to express the combination of confusion and horror.... to stimulate emotion in the onlooker, to exude something which captivates the spectator, which opens up to them an unsuspected pathway in their own soul.“

—  Ossip Zadkine

Quote of Zadkine from his 'Memoirs', 1967; as cited in 'Torso of the Destroyed City' http://www.zadkine.paris.fr/en/oeuvre/torso-destroyed-city, Musée Zadkine
Zadkine recounts the violence of the impressions which he felt then; the first draft for a monument to the 'Destroyed City', was broken in transport. A new version of a 'projected monument for a bombed city' was produced in 1947
1960 - 1968

„A cry of horror against the inhuman brutality of this act of tyranny.“

—  Ossip Zadkine

Quote of Zadkine c. 1953; as cited by M.G. Schenk, in Ossip Zadkine', Amsterdam 1967; as quoted in Sculpture International Rotterdam https://www.sculptureinternationalrotterdam.nl/en/collectie/the-destroyed-city - 'The Destroyed City'
According to Zadkine the idea for his sculpture 'The Destroyed City' was born when he arrived by train in the devastated city of Rotterdam in 1946/47, and saw the destroyed heart of the city because of the bombings by the German air-force, 14 May 1940
1940 - 1960

„My huge monument to the bombing of Rotterdam [in 1940, by the German aircraft], for instance, was the third and final version of this figure. Once the model had been accepted in principle and the scale agreed on, I began working on a new version of it, conceiving it to a great extent in terms of the effects of the changes of lighting in which such a monument would been seen in the open air.“

—  Ossip Zadkine

c. 1960
the name of the monument is ( 'Destroyed City', 1953 https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/47/Zadkine_%27s_verwoeste_stad..jpg), in Dutch language: in Dutch: 'De verwoeste Stad']

„At heart, I have always been a carpenter, who, instead of making a table or a door, was led to carve images in wood.“

—  Ossip Zadkine

as quoted in 'Wooden Sculptures' http://www.zadkine.paris.fr/en/collections/collections-sculptures/wooden-sculptures, Musée Zadkine
Musée Zadkine: it was through wood that Zadkine came to sculpture, after being initiated in the techniques of carving by a maternal uncle.
