Marian Kolodziej was on one of the first transports to enter Auschwitz. He was given number 432. He survived and never spoke of his experience for 50 years. After a serious stroke in 1993, he began rehabilitation by doing pen and ink drawings depicting the experiences he and others endured in the concentration camp. These drawings, in their skeletal detail, are a gripping depiction of the pain, death, and horrors of the camp. While most of the drawings represent the memories of a young man's hellish experiences in Auschwitz, some tell stories of small acts of kindness and dignity. The Labyrinth: The Testimony of Marian Kolodziej airs Monday, April 15 at 6:30 p.m. on WXXI World (DT21.2/cable 524). This program encores Tuesday, April 16 at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m. on WXXI World.
