        DAVID OLÈRE (1902-1985) A PAINTER IN THE SONDERKOMMANDO AT AUSCHWITZ (UN PEINTRE AU SONDERKOMMANDO À AUSCHWITZ)

      The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation, New York 1989 - First edition. Original illustrated stiff wrappers, Square 8vo, 111 pages. Includes 125 drawings and paintings, many in color. "L'oeil du témoin. The eyes of a witness. " Olère’s "work has exceptional documentary value: there are no photos of what happened in the gas chambers and crematoria, and Olère was the only artist to have worked as a member of the Sonderkommando and survived. He was also the first witness to draw plans and cross-sections to explain how the crematoria worked .David Olère (1902 - 1985) was a Polish-born French painter and sculptor best known for his explicit drawings and paintings based on his experiences as a Jewish Sonderkommando inmate at Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II . On February 20, 1943, Olère was arrested by French police during a round up of Jews in Seine-et-Oise and placed in Drancy internment camp. On March 2, 1943, he was one of approximately 1, 000 Jews deported from Drancy to Auschwitz. From this transport, Olere was one of 119 people selected for work; the rest were gassed shortly after arrival. He was registered as prisoner 106144 and assigned to the Sonderkommando at Birkenau, the unit of prisoners forced to empty gas chambers and burn the bodies, firstly working in Bunker 2 and later in Crematorium III. In addition to these duties, he was also forced to work as an illustrator, writing and decorating letters for the SS . Olère began to draw at Auschwitz during the last days of the camp, when the SS became less attentive . Olère felt compelled to capture Auschwitz artistically to illustrate the fate of all those that did not survive. He sometimes depicts himself in his paintings as a ghostly witnessing face in the background. He exhibited his work at the State Museum of Les Invalides and the Grand Palais in Paris, at the Jewish Museum in New York City, at the Berkeley Museum, and in Chicago. He retired from being an artist in 1962, and died in 1985." (Wikipedia 2014) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy of a very important book, seldom seen for sale.

Fine. Original cloth-backed marbled boards, the coloured plates loose within window mounts, all contained within a single green morocco-backed Solander box, by Aquarius.Number III of 35 copies. "The 15 plates which make up this publication were stipple-engraved on copper by Bauer between 1806 and 1813 after his watercolours drawn from nature. Both plates and watercolours are now in the collection of the British Museum (Natural History). These new impressions, the first to be taken from the original copperplates since Bauer's 1813 edition, were printed a la poupee and hand-finished in watercolour. Modern names and place of publication have been researched by Dr. Christopher Humphries.Only three parts of the original work were published, each limited to fewer than 50 copies, comprising a title, dedication (to Sir Joseph Banks), 3 pages of text and 15 plates.
