    The exhibition of 19 coal drawings created by Mieczysław Kościelniak, the exquisite Polish painter and graphic artist, during the World War II in the Auschwitz German Nazi Concentration Camp in occupied Poland will run for one month at Waseda University in Tokyo.

    The exhibition of works by Mieczysław Kościelniak, the exquisite Polish painter and graphic artist, drawn during the World War II in the Auschwitz German Nazi Concentration Camp in occupied Poland will run until 23 April at Waseda University in Tokyo.

     

    The 19 coal drawings on  display are just a small portion of a big, 300 piece collection. Drawn and smuggled out of the concentration camp under the threat of death, they found their way into Japan after the war ended.

     

    During the opening ceremony in Waseda University, Ambassador of Poland to Japan Cyryl Kozaczewski thanked Ms. Michiko Nomura, who was taking care of them for more than 20 years. He also expressed his gratitude to Waseda University’s authorities for “the possibility to exhibit these works before, as desired by Ms. Michiko Nomura, they go back to the place where they were created”.

     

    The exhibition was organized by Waseda University, Polish Institute and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Tokyo, in cooperation with Ms. Michiko Nomura.
