The Holocaust: The Horrifying Truths-Crystal Hamilton

This gallery shows the horrendous truths of what life was like in the 1930-40's during the Holocaust. This gallery contains images of Jewish and non-aryan people while being enslaved and imprisoned. This gallery includes photos people as slaves, dressed and imprisoned, starving from hunger, and other acts of violence. This art theme includes formal elements of space and color. Universal principles of design include unity, movement, and pattern. 

This image is of a police raid in 1933 in Berlin. Jewish and non-aryan's are taken and captured as prisoners. (Three Lions/Getty Images). Color and value are all crucial element forms of art in this photo. Color and value are tetradic black and white tints and shades to determine the building, vehicle, and people visibly. Unity and movement are principles of design. The illusion of movement is the vehicle and captured prisoners and unity is Jewish in the center of the photograph being captured.
This is a photo of the Jewish people having to surrender to the Germans in 1943. (Keystone/Getty Images). Unity and pattern are universal principles of design in this image. Together the Jewish people are surrendering and having their hands up in this photo showing repetative pattern.
This photo is of boys forced to dress in stripped outfits in the Auschwitz concentration camp in Auschwitz, Poland in 1940. (Hulton Archive/Getty Images). This photo demonstrates color and value for formal elements of art. Black and white tints show historic emotion and how the prisoners were forced to establish freedom by wearing the same striped outfits. Unity and pattern are examples of principles of design showing the images of the prisoners and having to be forced to live in a camp as one.
This photo is of the prisoners who struggled with living situations such as little room and hunger in the Buchenwald camp. (Photo by H. Miller/Getty Images). This photo uses space and emphasis as a formal element of art and principle of design. The prisoners were forced to sleep in bunkers that were three to a single bunker for space. Emphasis was to show the prisoner standing up nearly starving to death.
This is a photo of inmates as slaves in a concentration camp forced to do physical labor close to Berlin in 1945. (Fred Ramage/Getty Images). This image uses pattern as a universal principle of design in this photo. The image displays the striped jumpsuits as imprisonment. Unity is also example as they are together working in this photo.
This is a photo of a tin collected in 1944-1945 from the Dachau concentration camp. This tin held the entire contents of what inmates ate for food each day. (Holocaust Memorial Center). Space and shape are examples of formal elements of art showing how small the tin was that carried the entire amount of food prisoners were given each day and the geometric circular structure of the tin. This tin was in exchange for hard labor. Proportion is the principle of design in this image displaying the emotion that the realistic value plays in this tiny amount of food to the eye. Emphasis was also used in this photo as the tin is the center of the image.
This photo is of a prisoner who is beaten and too weak to move in the Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945. (Keystone/Getty Images). Line would be an example of a formal element of design as the prisoner's body is shaped and curved due to exhaustion. A principle of design would be emphasis as the prisoner is the center/ main focus of the image.
Arriving at the Auschwitz concentration camp, the Jewish prisoners captured had to wear a yellow star on their coats. May, 1944. The star was meant as an identifier to humiliate and segregate Jewish people. (Hulton Archive/Getty Images). Unity was used as a prime example of a principle of design in this photo. The star was used to signify prisoners in this image. Formal elements of art would be texture and space. The texture is clear of the fur in the jackets and space show's the Jewish close in this image having to be deported together with stars to separate them from others.
American soldiers watching as Germans are clearing up Wobbelin Concentration Camp in 1945. Corpses are surrounding them of many prisoners. (Keystone/Getty Images). Unity, emphasis, and pattern are examples of principles of designs. The dead prisoners are aligned as the closest to the eye to be the most noticeable besides the soldier in the very center. They are all aligned together closest to the eye for examples of emphasis and pattern. A formal element of art in this photo would be space. The prisoners are closest to the eye and still closest together.
This is the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp where bodies of inmates were tossed into a pit due death from typhus and starvation. (Russian Military Historical Society). Pattern and unity were examples of principles of design in this image. The inmates bodies are shown in many to show the true emotion of how many prisoners died due to unhealthy living situations and unfair treatments. A formal element of art would be space indicating how many people were just tossed into one pit and how many inmates there were.
