Documents and installations about Theresienstadt

An Exhibition by the Artist Marlies Poss on the Occasion of the Memorial Day For the Victims of National Socialism on 27 January 2018

The Munich artist Marlies Poss was born in 1944. Grandmother and mother had gone into hiding as Jewish women at this time, their great aunt Berthie Philipp had been deported from Hamburg to the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Thus in the biography of the artist a personal trace is laid for her artistic intention: Remembering forgotten Jewish life and awakening today's awareness of it. For the exhibition, Marlies Poss combined documents from her great-aunt and other Holocaust survivors with her own installations. She created delicate works from fragile, ephemeral materials, which made the childlike impression and the horror of this family history tangible.
