The painting on the cover, by the Jewish painter Marc Chagall, can be considered as a prophecy: executed in 1938, in response to the terrifying events of Kristallnacht, the “Night of broken glass”—an anti-Jewish pogrom of official decree by propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels in Nazi Germany (including Austria and Sudetenland)—anticipates all the horrors that will follow. Known for his lyricism and bright colours, in the White Crucifixion, Chagall doesn’t use them at all, as to better express the livid and arid despair of the times. At the centre, he puts the figure of Christ using a prayer shell, symbolizing all the sufferings of His people and humankind; on the upper left, he represents the red flags of communism, as a symbol of a terrible danger also approaching. Now that we are going through such dangerous times, in a moment where all good Muslims are being accused by many of being guilty by association of the acts of a bunch of fanatics, the painting is particularly inspiring. It warns us that we must be on guard and co-operate with people of any religion or of no religion to prevent all form of pain and bondages and assure the coming of the Kingdom—for all.
