"Charlotte tells the story of artist Charlotte Salomon--born in pre-World War II Berlin to a Jewish family traumatized by suicide. Obsessed with art, and with living, Charlotte attended school in Germany until it was too dangerous to remain, fled to France, and was interned in a bleak work camp from which she narrowly escaped. Newly free, she spent two years in almost total solitude, creating a series of autobiographical art--images, words, even musical scores--that together tell her life story. A pregnant Charlotte was killed in Auschwitz at the age of 26, but not before she entrusted her life's work to a friend, who kept it safe until peacetime..."--Jacket flap.

Incredibly moving account of the life of Charlotte Salomon.
I have not been this moved by a
book in a long time. Hopefully
Charlotte's work will be recognized for the genius and
beauty it possesses once again.
David Foenkino you are brilliant.
