Because I Was a Painter

Parce que j'etais peintre

Directed by Christophe Cognet
France, Germany, 2013


In 1945, when the Allies liberated the concentration camps, they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. These drawings, hidden from the Nazis, offer an unparalleled view of life during the war. For more than 70 years, the story of the artists who created them has remained untold.
