Alfred Bergel (1902-1944) was an artist and art teacher from Vienna. He was one of the central figures of the cultural life in the ghetto Theresienstadt until he was murdered in Auschwitz. Today his name and his works are mostly forgotten even to those who research into the Holocaust.
In Theresienstadt he was mis-used for forgery of famous works of art, worked as a painter and taught children and young people in drawing, art history and art appreciation. Alfred Bergel deserves our attention and respect for a way of life that was cut short by the experience of occupation, imprisonment and death in the gas chambers.
