The album presents 24 drawings made by Karol Linder, an illustrator who came to the conscription point of the People’s Army of Poland at Majdanek in August 1944 as one of the first volunteers. The drawings are author’s synthesis and artistic record of the accounts he heard from the KL Lublin prisoners and the images seen by Linder. The theme that prevails in his works is different forms of exterminating prisoners. The drawings can be sequenced into a chronological series of events that illustrate consecutive stages of prisoners’ stay in the camp. Some of them depict important events that took place at Majdanek, including the execution of Jews carried out on November 3, 1943. The reproductions are accompanied by extracts from the accounts given by former inmates of the concentration camp at Majdanek.
