Drawing by Alfred Kantor of barbed wire at Birkenau. The Czech at the bottom translates, ?Borderland between two camps within concentration camp, so-called `Neutral Zone.??

Alfred Kantor drew clandestine art throughout the war, but destroyed many of his pieces due to fear of Nazi persecution. While some of his works were smuggled out of the camps, many were re-created by him after the war. Kantor?s works include images of the ghetto, concentration camps, and liberation.

Kantor was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1923. When the Nazis took over Czechoslovakia, Kantor was expelled from school and deported. He survived the ghetto and camps at Terezin and Auschwitz-Birkenau, forced labor in Germany, as well as a ?death march? from Dresden back to Terezin. Kantor immigrated to the US after the war, where he became a commercial artist.
