HOW IT IS, BUT HOW IT SHOULD BE: AN IMAGINED LIFE OUTSIDE OF GURS
How It is, But How It Should Be: An Imagined Life Outside of Gurs. While imprisoned in Camp de Gurs in unoccupied France in 1941, a young artist named Trudl Besag made an illustrated booklet and gave it to a fellow prisoner, Rosa Hirschbruch, for her 65th birthday. The booklet, entitled "So ist es, aber, so soll’s sein" (How it is, but how it should be), vividly illuminates the daily life in Gurs, presents an artful and hopeful response to imprisonment, and captures the will of these prisoners to continue to dream of another life.
Location: Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, 9603 Woods Drive, Skokie
