The Sketchbook from Auschwitz

22-03-2012

Published for the first time in full by the Auschwitz State Museum, the Sketchbook is a unique work. Twenty-two drawings done by an anonymous prisoner were hidden in a bottle in the foundations of one of the barracks at Auschwitz II-Birkenau not far from the gas chambers and crematoriums, where they were found two years after the war.

The book is available on the on-line bookshop
