On Display: Secret Holocaust Art

The Auschwitz museum is currently displaying photographs of artwork secretly created by death camp inmates during the Holocaust. The exhibit includes 20 drawings and other items, ranging from scenes from camp life to illustrations for children’s stories to religious artifacts.

Photographs are used to keep the artwork mobile and to protect the originals. The “forbidden art” exhibit will later be sent to a United States museum.
