Holocaust survivor shares stories of art from concentration camps
A Holocaust survivor in Central Georgia shared his research about art that came out of concentration camps during World War II on Sunday at Georgia College and State University.
More than 50 people listened to Alfred Schneider present artwork music written by prisoners, and photographs depicting life at the Nazi concentration camps. Schneider said even though the presentation paints a different perspective of the Holocaust, the heartfelt struggle for survival can be seen in his presentation.
“There's something in music that is unique you know and trying to reproduce the ambiance, the hopelessness and most of the time you don't need any translation because music is understood by all people,” Schneider said.
The presentation is to promote the theatre department's play "The Flights of Jan Wiener" which will be performed for one night at the Campus Black Box Theatre on Thursday.
