Women Artists Under the Nazi Regime (2021)

The full work was published in the journal Literature and Belief, in a special edition of 220 pages, by Professor Victoria Aarons, Department of English, Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas (2021). This is a series of portraits of ten Jewish women artists who lived under the Nazi regime and a paragraph with their biography. The drawings are part dreams, part childhood memories, a period of these artists mostly unknown.

From 1933 to 1944, the Nazi Regime in Germany censored all forms of art except those that represented their specific racial and heroic ideas. Under Nazi rule, hundreds of Jewish women artists were forced to sublimate the world they witnessed and the sentiment the world produced in them. Most of them were annihilated in concentration camps for being Jewish, and most of their work was burnt or lost.
