“We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The International Auschwitz Committee has started the art project “Find Felka! Find Felix!” in remembrance of the artist couple Felka Platek and Felix Nussbaum, who were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau in August 1944.
The project tells the story of the artist couple Felka Platek and Felix Nussbaum through 40 episodes. From December 2013 until August 2014, biographical sequels about their private and artistic lives will be launched weekly on the website www.find-felka-find-felix.info. Parallel to the growing story of Felka and Felix, pictures by both of the artists emerge in the background. At the end of the project these pictures will be presented as large-format posters on public buildings in Warsaw, Berlin and Brussels.
The famous artwork of Felix Nussbaum as well as some paintings by Felka Platek are exhibited at the Felix Nussbaum House, a museum designed by the architect Daniel Libeskind in Nussbaum’s hometown of Osnabruck, Germany.
