‘Forbidden Art’ Exhibit Showcasing Artwork by Auschwitz Prisoners
March 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - April 19, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
This is the New England premiere of the exhibit “Forbidden Art,” and it comes on the heels of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The pieces in this exhibit – often made using scraps of paper or other discarded materials – feature scenes documenting daily life in the camps as well as portraits of prisoners. They offer a window into how the prisoners mentally escaped from the horrors of their imprisonment by creating drawings and paintings, albums of greetings, and even illustrated fairy tales written for their children, with whom they longed to reunite.
