Lunch & Learn: “They Shall Be Counted”


“They Shall Be Counted: The Theresienstadt Ghetto Art of Erich Lichtblau-Leskly” is a gallery of sketches and watercolor illustrations by Holocaust-era artist Erich Lichtblau-Leskly. While imprisoned in Theresienstadt Ghetto, he expressed himself artistically, creating breathtaking illustrations as a tribute to ghetto residents. Out of fear for his safety, he cut his illustrations into pieces and hid them under the floorboards of the ghetto barracks. He miraculously retrieved them after liberation, and later re-worked the sketches into full-size watercolor illustrations.
