Joseph Henri Gosschalk

Joseph Henri Gosschalk (1875 - 1952) was a Dutch Jewish painter, known for his (primarily landscape) drawings from his travels across Europe.
During WWII he was first interned in the Nazi concentration camp Westerbork (Netherlands), before being transported to Theresienstadt.
While in Westerbork he continued his work, making drawings and sketches of camp life and the surroundings of the camp.
The picture below is of wagons taken from Roma, Sinti and travellers by the Germans and stored at the perimeter of Camp Westerbork. 
Gosschalk survived the camps and died in 1952 in the Hague.
