"Creating evidence for posterity was Georg Tauber's goal as he began, immediately after his liberation from the Dachau concentration camp, to depict artistically what he had experienced there. In numerous watercolor and pencil drawings the Bavarian advertising illustrator strikingly documented 'everyday life' in the camp and the SS terror. The background story of his own persecution also make these drawings unique. A former 'asocial' prisoner, Georg Tauber belonged to a victim group from whom scarcely any personal testimonies exist due to the ongoing social discrimination they were subject to after the war. Georg Tauber was an exception: in 1946 he formed an initiative that campaigned for the interests of 'asocial' and 'criminal' concentration camp victims. The exhibition 'Evidence for Posterity' is the first time that Georg Tauber's work has been presented to the public"--Back cover.
