A scarce artistic monument of a female survivor of Auschwitz.

Ágnes Lukács (b. 1920) is a Hungarian painter, Holocaust survivor. Lukács was deported to Auschwitz in July 1944 and she was liberated by the US Army in April 1945 in Salzwedel, the female subcamp of the Neuengamme concentration camp. She went back to Hungary in late 1945 and started to work on her 24-piece series of drawing about her experiences at the women’s camp of Auschwitz. According to her memories, she showed the drawings to Béla Dénes the head of Ichud Mapai, the Hungarian Socialist-Zionist party, who decided to publish them on the first anniversary of the liberation of the Budapest Ghetto.
