Heartbreaking Colorized Photos of an Auschwitz Young Prisoner

Marina Amaral is a digital artist who is fond of putting colors on historic photographs. Her most recent project is the photos of Czeslawa Kwoka, a 14-year old prisoner located in Auschwitz.

The original images that Amaral used are captures of Wilhelm Brasse. He was a famous photographer and a prisoner at the same time, during World War II. Amaral wanted to share the story of the victims of the Holocaust, which is not easy to see.

The 14-year old Czeslawa Kwoka was filled with innocence when she was put to the concentration camp, Auschwitz.

Colorized photo of Kwoka is a living proof of the hell that the prisoners experienced in the camp.

Marina Amaral has brought life to other historic photographs as well. They are the burning monk, the American bombing victim, and the 1945 English Orphan.
