I find it fascinating.

Even through all those atrocities he still had the desire to express his misery through artistic vision, even if the muses weren't so, enchanting, creators have to create, there's a beauty to them in that sense.  It's awful what happened in those camps, but i see it as a testament to what they experienced and are now able to share with future generations so that such things won't be forgotten...that's what art should be for.

well, the fact is, most beautiful art was created in times of greatest sufferings... poverty, illness, loneliness.... its just how it works i guess....

...anger, love, joy, failure...

Look at erotica, renaissance and even surrealism, it works in as many ways as there are muses for inspiration

beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the job of an artist is to stimulate that eye and stir emotion.
