Meghan Gieseker of the Illinois Holocaust Museum will share an online tour of Erich Lichtblau-Leskly's work.

They Shall Be Counted is a gallery of original paintings and drawings by Lichtblau-Leskly. While imprisoned in Theresienstadt (Terezin) Ghetto, he depicted the daily lives of its residents, poignantly capturing the complications and ironies of ghetto life.

In spring 1945, Lichtblau-Leskly cut most of his artwork into pieces. His wife, Elsa Lichtblau, hid the fragmented artwork under the floorboards of the barracks, and Lichtblau-Leskly was able to retrieve it after liberation. While living in Israel during the 1950s and 1960s, he reworked these fragments into larger watercolor illustrations. Both original sketches and reworked illustrations will be on display in the collection.

Registration closes at noon the day of the event. We will email the Zoom event link after registration has closed. If you have questions about this event after registration has closed, please email the events team or call the library at 847-673-7774.
