All of the sketches (800+) are done in the last two years of Charlotte Salomon’s life. Made during the rise of Nazism in Europe, deeply personal sketches,  social events, and survival, are overlaid with text by Salomon, e.g. family, home, loss, love, riots on the streets, travel and hiding.  She entitles the close to 800 pages, “Life? or Theatre?” 1930s-40s.
