To fight despair, Charlotte starts to paint, producing over 1,000 images. "Is my life real, or is it theater?" This is the title she gives her body of work, which highlights her former life in Berlin. She finds herself though her art, but in 1943 is deported to Germany and Auschwitz. Written by Gonz30
