The artist
Adolf Frankl
1903 Bratislava - 1983 Vienna
lived and worked in this house.
Here, he created the cycle of paintings and drawings
Visions from the Inferno

extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

"Through my works I have created a memorial
for all nations of the world.

No one, regardless of religion, race, or political conviction
should ever again suffer such - or similar - atrocities!"

The Frankl Family express their heartfelt gratitude to all
who helped them, and others, to survive the Holocaust.
