Book Overview

This book is only available in German

Alfred Bergel (1902 - 1944) was an artist and drawing teacher from Vienna and friend of Karl König, who frequently reports in his youth diaries about his best friend Fredi. After the annexation of Austria Alfred Bergel could not - as hoped for by him - flee; In 1942 he was deported to Theresienstadt by the National Socialists. Imprisoned there, he made numerous artistic works on the inmates of the ghetto and taught children and adolescents in drawing, art history and art appreciation - sometimes in collaboration with the Bauhaus artist Friedl Dicker-Brandeis.
