The Kostopol Warrior is named after Baseman’s mother’s hometown in (once was) Poland and now, Ukraine. Kostopol – before WWII was a vibrant town where 80% of its population were Jewish. During the War, the Germans along with the local Ukrainian Nazi sympathists, systematically mass murdered the townspeople including Baseman’s grandparents. Baseman’s mother, Naomi Litvak, was one of a few inhabitants who survived. Baseman named each of the Buckingham Warrior figures in the memory of his parent’s hometowns – never forgetting those who lost their lives. Honoring those who survived. Celebrating the brave people who saved today’s survivors.
