Abstract

This Record Group comprises collections of preparatory materials in the form of art-works and correspondences, all inall related to Erich Lichtblau creativity in the Theresienstadt ghetto and during the postwar period in Czechoslovakia and Israel.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group contains the original watercolors and sketches created by Eli Leskly, also known as Erich Lichtblau, while in the Theresienstadt Ghetto, as well as in the postwar period in Czechoslovakia. The over 150 artworks held by the LA Museum of the Holocaust include watercolors and sketches from Leskly's period in the ghetto; small watercolors from the postwar period; and replicas of Theresienstadt pictorial diary from his period in Israel in the 1960s.

The materials in this record group are digitized.

Collection Historical Note

While living in Israel, Eli Leskly decided to recreate and provide expanded captions for the original watercolors he painted whilst in Theresienstadt Ghetto. He recreated more than seventy watercolors, using both watercolor and diluted ink. Though these recreations stemmed from the original watercolors, there were some notable variations with regard to the captions and slogans. By recreating these works, Leskly made them available for exhibitions in Israel. His first personal exhibition took place in Kibbutz Givat Chayim in Israel in 1978. His works also crossed the ocean in 1984, where they were displayed at the Jewish Community Building Galleries in Los Angeles, CA.

Biographical Note

Erich Lichtblau, later known as Eli Leskly, was born in 1911 in Hrusov (Hruschau), Czechoslovakia (then Austria-Hungary). Little is known about his life in interwar Czechoslovakia (1919-1939). There are only two scarce biographical notes, which relate that he was trained as a commercial designer and that, in 1940, he and his wife, Else, lived in the town of Pisek.

In November 1942, Erich and Else Lichtblau were deported to Theresienstadt (Terezin) ghetto, which, besides being a main incarceration center for Central European Jews, also served as a place used to deceive the world that the Jews of Europe were alive and being treated well. (The Nazi regime used it as a stage for filming propaganda and a tourist stop for international commissions.) Being an inmate and an employee of the Technical Department, Erich Lichtblau exercised a relative freedom of mobility within the ghetto. He thus had a unique opportunity to observe day-to-day scenes of ghetto life. Having pictured these mini-stories in his mind, he began to transfer them on to paper. Between 1942 and 1945, he created a pictorial ghetto-diary. Not long before liberation, Lichtblau, fearful of SS searches for evidence incriminating the Germans, destroyed many of his paintings, especially the captions to the watercolors. His wife Else managed to salvage many fragments, by clandestinely hiding them. After the liberation they recovered the hidden artworks.

Erich Lichtblau's artworks significantly differ from a ‘typical’ Holocaust graphic. The works capture the complications and ironies of Theresienstadt. They universally depict the fundamental desperation lurking in every moment of life in the show ghetto. Instead of a barbed wire, striped uniform, and death scenes, ghetto life is seen through the prism of everyday errands and chores, depicted in grotesques and caricatures. Erich Lichtblau convincingly challenges the Nazi anti-Jewish concepts by depicting and interpreting the ghetto life in a style he would use for a ‘normal’ commercial advertisement in his prewar practice.

While in Israel, circa the 1960s, Lichtblau changed his name to Eli Leskly.
