Premonitory disappearances that Charlotte will entitle:  "Life?  or Theater?"  in her collection of moving drawings.  Born in 1917 in Berlin in a richly established family, daughter of surgeon, she moves in the German cultural and social life most refined, specially in the opera.  Despite of racial repression which forbid the Jews to attend the official schools, she integrates in 1935, the Union of the National Schools of Arts Free and Applied of Berlin.  Nevertheless, one of its professors will require of her to refuse its first price of the Art schools, which would dangerously expose her to the eyes of the authorities.  The situation becoming horrible, Solomon, grandparents, parents and children, leave Germany and will settle to Villefranche-sur-Mer.  Charlotte draws each day, with passion and despair, until the last hour.  She is 28 years old when the Nazis find her, arrest her, send her to Auschwitz where she will be assassinated as of her arrival, May 9, 1945.  The whole of its drawings were preciously preserved by the people who sheltered the family at Villefranche.  This exhibition reveals us for the first time 278 drawings of Charlotte.  True sketches, speaking between the caricature, the expressionism, the tragic illustration.  Drawings we have to read and listen.
