Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, 13-year-old Thomas Geve was separated from his mother and left to fend for himself in the men's camp. Over the next 22 months, he was forced to observe first-hand the inhumane world of three Nazi concentration camps, finally being freed from Buchenwald in April of 1945. On his eventual release, Geve felt compelled to capture daily life in the death camps in more than 80 profoundly moving drawings. While recounting Geve's life before, during, and after the war, this profound chronicle also includes rare family photos and samples of his poignant images of life under impossible circumstances.
