Forbidden art: A Symposium and Exhibition on Camp Art from the Collections of the Auschwitz Memorial

This exhibition from the Auschwitz Memorial features twenty works of art made illegally and under the threat of death by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. At once a unique historical document and testament to the fight for one’s own humanity, the art is also a record of each prisoner-artist’s inner life. The photographs are accompanied by historical commentary and excerpts from archival accounts, and include drawings depicting the plight of inmates, scenes from camp life and portraits. They also include excerpts from fairy tales that inmates wrote for their children left at home, and in some cases, information about the artists themselves.

Exhibit will run from December 10 - January 31, 2013 at Hillel at UCLA & St. Alban's Episcopal Church
