Abstract

These collections contains artworks in the form of graphics and watercolors created in the Nazi places of incarcerations and in the wake of liberation. The artists reflect on the inhumane conditions of Nazi concentration camps and ghettos, as well as on relations between prisoners and relations between prisoners and the camp and ghetto German personnel

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group is comprised of various artworks including paintings, sculpture, metal-forms, and combined compositions. The works in this record group reflect the Holocaust through the artists’ lenses. A number of artworks commemorate the Holocaust in general, while some are dedicated to specific Holocaust-related events and landmarks.

Materials within this record group include lithographs, original sketches in pen on paper, placards, postwar prints, framed artworks of the modern period. Some of the artwork is digitized.

Collection Historical Note

Post-Holocaust art, like post-Holocaust literature, stands out because it was directly induced and influenced by the enormous tragedy that the survived European Jewry lived through. For the artists represented in this record group, largely former prisoners of concentration camps and ghettos, art became the platform for their testimonies and recollections. Lev Haas, Henri Pieck, Moritz Müller and George Zielezinski exemplify this approach in their post-Holocaust art, as did Erich Lichtblau, the chronicler of Theresienstadt ghetto life.

Biographical Note

Henri Pieck was an artist, interned at Buchenwald.
