Film and Reality, a pen and ink illustration on paper, was created by Bedřich Fritta, a Theresienstadt prisoner and artist, in 1944 in Theresienstadt. The purpose of this artwork is to creatively allude to the false images presented in the film created after the Red Cross’ inspection of Theresienstadt in 1944: Theresienstadt: A Documentary Film from the Jewish Settlement Area.
