Voice of Marian Kolodziej Roman S. Czarny


Memory, art, love, and hell collide as an Auschwitz survivor Marian Kolodziej finally confronts the horrors of his past after 50 years of silence. Marian’s story of survival, of persistence, of life before, during, and after Auschwitz are a testament to the human spirit. Marian’s drawings and art installations, which he called The Labyrinth, fill the large basement of a church near Auschwitz and draw visitors into the horrific reality of the holocaust.
