This exhibit focuses on the works of young artist Helga Wolfenstein King, whose connection to artist and poet Peter Kien influenced her greatly. While imprisoned in the Terezin ghetto, both worked in the technical department's drafting office, which provided visual aids for the Jewish administration's reports to the SS, as well as artwork for propaganda purposes. The young Kien, who was the office's deputy manager, was Helga's teacher and a kindred spirit. The love and artistic partnership that evolved between them is clearly reflected in their art.
