Last Expression: Art from Auschwitz

Described as a forum to explore "the roles, functions, meanings, and makings of art in the Nazi concentration camps," this Website posts cataloged images of art work, including drawings, paintings, and photographs, done by prisoners at Auschwitz - Birkenau. In addition to the searchable and browseable collection of hundreds of works of art, the Website offers essays and streaming video lectures about the art, biographical information about the artists, and historical background about Auschwitz itself. A virtual tour of Auschwitz is also available in QuickTime and features links to artworks drawn from various sites. Prepared by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University, the site is "optimized for viewing in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) on a PC," but we didn't encounter difficulties using Netscape on a Macintosh G3.
