Over 350 artworks created in ghettos, concentration camps, and in hiding by victims of the Nazis. Dust jacket notes: "The artists of the Holocaust were victims -- until they picked up their pencils and began to draw. They were doomed -- until they immortalized themselves in their work. They were powerless -- until they mastered the scraps of paper on which they drew. Throughout the twelve years of the Third Reich, an indomitable group of artists risked their lives to record the crimes of the Nazi regime and the agony of its victims. Working in ghettos, transit camps, in hiding and in concentration camps, they have left behind a body of material that documents their hope, humanity and creative spirit as well as their suffering -- witness to the fact that while many of them perished, they also lived and created. This highly varied body of work ranges from gentle watercolor landscapes and sketches that could have been done at any time and place to anguished scenes of torture, from bitter satirical drawings that helped the victims vent their anger and lessen their pain, to grim pictures that force us to remember it. The artists worked in various media -- watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen and ink, wood, pencil. They worked on whatever materials were available -- the finest canvas, artist's paper or the backs of work orders and scraps rescued from trash barrels. They created in compliance with Nazi orders as well as clandestinely, at great risk to their lives. The more than 30, 000 works that survive represent hundreds of artists. It is an incredible collection, whose power is undeniable and whose overall impression is one of strange beauty. In Art of the Holocaust more than 350 of these works are reproduced, over 60 in full color. In addition, the book records the story behind each work, stories of ingenuity, defiance, courage...."
