Creativity in Focus Film Series: Because I was a Painter

When the Allies liberated the concentration camps in 1945 they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. These drawings, hidden from the Nazis, offer an unparalleled view of life during the war. For more than seventy years the story of the artists who created them has remained untold. With unprecedented access to paintings, drawings, etchings, and sculptures held in collections around the world the film conducts a gripping and fascinating investigation into art that captures, reflects, and inspires in difficult times.
