Learning About the Holocaust Through Art

From holocaust-education.net:

In these words Halina Olomucki relates to the works of art she produced in the Warsaw ghetto and in Auschwitz. She was one of many artists who continued to paint and draw in the ghettos and concentration camps. As well as bearing witness to the rich and intensive artistic activity that took place during the Holocaust, these works of art – mostly sketches or watercolors – provide valuable information on the life of the inmates. They are historical documents, and the first to acknowledge their importance were the artists themselves.
