Joaquim Amat-Piniella: escriure contra el silenci
Joaquim Amat-Piniella is the author of K.L. Reich (1984), considered Catalan's main testimony to the horrors of the Holocaust in terms of literature. He survived five years in the Mauthausen concentration camp before being liberated by American troops. He depicts the atrocities he suffered in the autobiographical novel K.L. Reich, which is deemed to be on a par with the works of famed international authors such as Primo Levi, Robert Antelme, Imre Kertész and Jorge Semprún.
The exhibition aims to show the author's life and work through four major stages: The Republic of freedom; A life marked by the Civil War; Fugitive - the prisoner refugee; and Exile.
