In 1945, when the Allies liberated the concentration camps, they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. These drawings, hidden from the Nazis, offer an unparalleled view of life during the war. For more than 70 years, the story of the artists who created them has remained untold. With unprecedented access to paintings, drawings, etchings and sculptures held in collections around the world, Because I Was a Painter
conducts a gripping and fascinating investigation into art that captures, reflects and inspires in difficult times.
"A meditation on suffering and beauty and how art can bridge the gap between the two."
