Writer and artist Charlotte Salomon, the daughter of a highly cultivated Jewish family in Berlin, was deported to Auschwitz and murdered at the age of 26. In her final work Life? or Theatre? Salomon envisioned the circumstances surrounding the eight suicides in her family, all but one of them women. Darcy C. Buerkle, an Associate Professor of History at Smith College, explores Salomonís tragic life as she discusses her remarkable book, Nothing Happened: Charlotte Salomon and an Archive of Suicide, as part of the Holocaust Living History Workshop sponsored by UC San Diego.
