Marianne Grant was a Jewish artist and Holocaust survivor from Prague who settled in Glasgow after the end of World War II. She uniquely recorded in drawings her experiences of imprisonment in the concentration camp-ghetto Theresienstadt, the Czech family camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau, German slave labour camps and Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp. This small exhibition powerfully showcases examples of the drawings that Grant declared ‘saved my life’.

The Marianne Grant Holocaust Artworks Collection, which comprises 77 artworks, was purchased in 2004 with grant aid assistance from The Heritage Lottery Fund, Art Fund and National Fund for Acquisitions.


Permanent exhibition, with annual rotation of artworks every January
