Born in 1911, Leskley painted 70 satiric watercolors while he was interned inTheresienstadt. The works are reflective of daily life in the ghetto. Fearing for his and his wife's life he cut up many of the orignals into small fragments, which his wife smartly hid. They were retrieved after the war and Leskley recreated each one. All of the following images relate to life in Theresienstadt. They reflect tthe irony and the complexities that was life in Theresenstadt.
