Double Signature: Portraits of Personalities from the Terezin Ghetto
Max Plaček | Exhibition Curator: Bella Shomer-Zaitchik | Editor: Bracha Freundlich
This collection, a rare human document created under very special circumstances, was exhibited in the Yad Vashem Art Museum. These drawings force us to re-examine the question of spiritual courage, man's struggle to preserve his humanity; in our context, Plaček makes us look at life in the Terezin ghetto in the shadow of death, a life that ended – for most of the people that he drew – in the death camps. It should be perceived as an arresting artistic document as well as a topical historical record.
