In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto and the Warsaw Uprising, the Kordegarda Gallery in Warsaw hosts an exhibition of rare drawings by the illustrator known only by the name of Rozendfeld.
These raw, startling images represent the struggles of everyday people within the harrowing conditions of the Warsaw Ghetto, which was established at the start of World War II by the Nazis and liquidated by the Polish authorities at the end of the war. Death was a constant fixture of life in the ghetto, represented by such drawings as Funeral Fund, portraying a public collection of funds on behalf of a young boy found dead in the street to pay for his funeral.Other images show children apprehended by police for stealing food and the sick being transported by civilians to hospitals.
The exhibition runs between the 22nd of July - 12 of August, curated by Piotr Żuchowski and organised in cooperation with the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute and the National Centre for Culture (NCK). For more information, see: www.kordegarda.org
