Abstract:

French Jewish artists, prohibited from exhibiting their art and visiting museums and galleries during the Nazi occupation, could, paradoxically, continue their creative work as prisoners in French internment camps. Notes common themes in paintings and drawings, realized in a variety of styles by artists from various cultural backgrounds. German, Austrian, and Belgian refugees were interned in camps in Southern France; in the North the inmates mostly had Eastern European backgrounds. Their art depicts barbed wires, watchtowers, and everyday life in the camps, and includes portraits as well. Artistic activities peaked between winter 1940-41 and summer 1942, when deportations began. Artists gave their renditions until they themselves were deported. Describes exhibitions in the camps, which attracted local inhabitants and authorities, but were ignored by the press. Discusses illustrated books by Horst Rosenthal, who depicts everyday life in Gurs in a humoristic way. Rosenthal, originally from Breslau, was interned in 1940 and deported to Auschwitz in 1942. Pp. 181-237 contain short biographies of 48 interned artists, 37 of them Jewish.
