"The Dark Lady" By ~ Anna Katrina Zinkeisen ~ 1901 ~ 1976.

The full extent of Anna's work during the Second World War is unclear, but by the middle of the 1940's it is known that Doris was touring Belgium, France and Germany in her capacity as war artist. In 1945 she arrived at Belsen Concentration Camp immediately after it's liberation, in time to document the movement of 28,000 former inmates, attempts to care for and rehabilitate them, and the aftermath of the operation in which 13,000 of them who were beyond help died.
