Arrival of a Convoy"
Transcript of Arrival of a Convoy"
Famous artists who were victims of the Holocaust/ painted about events
Artists who survived
All but one of the artists listed before were all survivors of the holocaust, except for one. Felix Nussbaum was an early painted in life to try and earn money to provide for his family. When Nazi's gained control over Germany in 1933, he soon realized that because of his Jewish heritage, he could not remain at the art academy he was at, and began to live his life in fear. This began to show through all of his paintings. His wife and himself spent the next ten years of their lives in exile, where they had extremely isolated and emotional time. But, during that period, it was his most artistically productive part in his life.
After being arrested by German police in 1940, his wife and himself were able to escape and lived their life in hiding for four years. Eventually, they were found hiding in an attic and arrested and send to a concentration camp in Auschwitz. Only a week later, Felix was murdered at the age of 39 by German forces

of the amazingly gifted artist, David Olère.

and dark photo of an officer looking over a
group of concentration camp men, struggling
