In 1945, when the Allies liberated the concentration camps, they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. With unprecedented access to paintings, drawings, etchings and sculptures held in collections around the world, BECAUSE I WAS A PAINTER conducts a gripping and fascinating investigation into art that captures, reflects and inspires in difficult times. *"BECAUSE I WAS A PAINTER maintains a funereal rhythm, alternating images of artworks with long-distance views of camp barracks as they are today, the camera moving slowly and stealthily." Stephen Holden, The New York Times
