difficult and long captivity
The artwork in the Dachau Album was created by a Roman Catholic Polish political prisoner by the name of Michael Porulski who had been in various concentration camps throughout most of World War II. Following the liberation of Dachau, Porulski spent the rest of his life wandering the world and eventually died in England in 1989, alone and penniless.
The Dachau Album Project tells the compelling stories of these two men, seeks to uncover the mysteries contained within it and relates the experience of the Holocaust in a way never depicted before.
During a recent trip to Germany, the Dachau Album was evaluated by Holocaust experts at the Dachau Memorial and Archives, The International Tracing Service and the Bavarian State Archives, and was deemed to be historically unique and an artistic treasure.
This impressive new discovery is now being revealed to the public for the first time.
