Monday, January 27th, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps Auschwitz-Birkenau. Documents and research identify 27 Czech-Jews who perished in Auschwitz. They were transported to the death camps mainly from the Theresienstadt ghetto during WWII.
The commemorative exhibition "Butterflies don't live in the ghetto" displays artistic interpretations of the 27 brave victims in the form of original artworks created by the students of the Atelier of Photography at Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design & Art. The exhibition runs simultaneously in Ladislav Sutnar Gallery and the Old Synagogue in the city center of Pilsen.
"Butterflies don't live in the ghetto" serves as a meeting point for the peaceful commemoration of all victims of the second World War and calls for tolerance, peace and brotherhood in the politically tense world of today.
