Black and White is Full of Colors

Friedl Dricker-Brandeis, a talented Bauhaus artist and a communist, was deported by the Nazis from Vienna to Prague, then sent to the Theresienstadt concentration camp.  Friedl devoted her life to the camp’s orphans. She taught them how they could use drawing to express themselves, their fears, their memories, and their hopes. In one of the intriguing paradoxes of history, it was only in the camp that she was able to implement the principles of the Bauhaus technique and become a pioneer in art therapy. Some five thousand of these children’s drawings were found after the war, hidden in an attic in two suitcases, and they testify to the creative vigor that existed amidst the horror. Friedl and most of her students perished during the war, but their spirit and legacy survived thanks to their art.
