This exhibit involves 39 artists and is a moving response to the tragedy of WWII, touching on various themes beginning with 'War Signs,' which warns us how easy it is to ignore the early signs of impending doom. The next chapter familiarises us with 'Sonderaktion Krakau' - a Nazi operation carried out as part of the broader plan to eradicate the Polish intellectual elite. Another theme explored by the artists is 'Anti-semitic propaganda,' which was already quite rampant in Polish society before the war and used effectively by the Nazis, followed by sections on 'The Jewish Ghetto' - a tragic example of human helplessness in the face of suffering, and 'The Warsaw Uprising' - a horrific event still is open to many interpretations. The exhibit concludes with 'Extermination' and the eradication of human values, followed by 'The Artist as a Historical Witness.'
