Carefully researched over a period of five years by David Mickenberg, while director of the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University in Chicago, and by Corinne Granof, Assistant Curator at the Block Museum, this is the largest exhibition of art from the concentration camps, ghettos, and hiding places of Nazi-occupied Europe ever assembled, with over 200 works, the majority on loan from museums and private collections in Poland and Israel. Some works are by amateurs, some by accomplished artists as Jozef Szajna. Some were done on assignment by SS authorities as a means of survival, others done secretly to preserve or smuggle out evidence of the horrors, or to salvage at least a portrait from the genocide.
