Eyewitness examines a unique genre of art: sketches and paintings done secretly by men and women who
lived and died inside the walls of the Nazi death camps. This body of work, much of it unearthed for
the first time from the death camp's archives, provides chilling testimony to Auschwitz's daily routine
of torture and execution. The film documents the life and work of three artists - Jan Komski, Dina
Gottliebova and Felix Nussbaum - who more than fifty years ago witnessed and painted the horror.
