The pictures were drawn by children who were only 10 or 11 years old on that day.
Even though they depict happy memories of schools, amusement parks,
beautiful flowers and butterflies, they reflect the event of the Holocaust.
I hope you will listen to the voices coming from the drawings.
But don’t you wonder?
How could they draw these pictures in the Ghetto called “the antechamber of hell”?
Even though the war was over, and people were liberated,
they were still in the midst of confusion.
How were they able to preserve 4,000 drawings?
How is it possible to know the names of the children who drew these pictures?
How could we know when the children were born and when they were sent to Auschwitz?
Some people did not lose their dignity under any circumstances
and did not give in to unreasonable and great forces.
They strove to pass down their tragic experience to future generations,
so that the same mistakes would never be repeated.
So many people had strong determination.
