German-Jewish artist-in-exile Felix Nussbaum’s single wish was to ensure his art would be saved and its imagery serve as a testament to his and countless other Jews’ agony while hiding from the Nazis, knowing that deportation to Auschwitz meant certain death. Such was his fate and his German home town of Osnabruck has created a Felix Nussbaum Society and Museum that tells this remarkably talented artist’s story through his works and letters. This video is both a guide to the museum and serves as a reminder that within Germany today many are committed to memorializing those who perished in the Holocaust.
