Biography   Leo Haas


Leo Haas was born in Opawa, Czechoslovakia in 1901.  During the years 1939-45, he was an inmate of Nisko, Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen, Mauthausen and Ebensee Concentration Camps.  In Theresienstadt, he was one of the principal painters who sought to record the atrocities of the Nazis at enormous personal risk.

At Auschwitz, Haas was forced to produce portraits for Mengele and later he worked for the forgery commando of Sachsenhausen.  Haas's work is represented in a number of Holocaust Museums and features prominently in the literature of Holocaust art.
