Director Irek Dobrowolski Screens and Discusses His Award-Winning Documentary Film “The Portraitist”

January 7th, 2013

Director Irek Dobrowolski screened and discussed his award-winning Holocaust documentary film The Portraitist on Thursday, November 29, 2012, at CSULB’s University Student Union Auditorium. The Portraitist recounts the photography and story of Wilhelm Brasse who was sent to Auschwitz as a political prisoner in 1940. For five years, the Nazis forced Brasse, later nicknamed “the photographer of Auschwitz,” to photograph more than 40,000 prisoners in Auschwitz for “identity pictures.”
