The 1325 gouache was painted between 1940 and 1942. In the despair and loneliness of exile projected Charlotte Salomon their lives in an imaginary inner stage, where she wrote her true story as a lyrical drama.

Of particular interest to students of German is the combination of Charlotte Salomon's personal history in pictures and brief written comments. The original exhibition is at the Jewish Historical Museum Amsterdam. The exhibition at the Goethe-Institut 62 shows gouache and comments.
