Activity 2 - Landscape and Environment

(A) Look at the art works from Compiègne, Saint-Cyprien, Terezin and Kovno. As you are looking, use the choose function to select works that show the landscape or camp/ghetto environment.

(B) Note down the elements in these pictures that you expected to see and those that are unexpected or surprising.

(C) You have been asked to prepare a small exhibition of art works showing the camp OR ghetto environment. Choose 6 works and write a short caption for each. Write an introduction to the exhibition, describing the camps or ghettos you have chosen and the way they are depicted in the works. You will find useful background information in the camp/ghetto histories and in the essays in the study resources section
