Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:In Dachau, the oldest and most abysmal of concentration camps, and a training ground for guards at other concentration camps, a prisoner turns a formula letter sheet into art, to the right of the list of strict rules and regulations enforced by the Kommandant. Harsh punishment could follow creating such “illegal” art, and these drawings were usually done secretly, often embodying images and memories of freedom denied to the prisoners.
