Marina Amaral’s colourised portrait of a 14-year-old girl murdered at Auschwitz lays bare the heartbreaking brutality experienced by victims of the Holocaust.

Political prisoner Czesława Kwoka was one of 230,000 children deported to the notorious Nazi death camp located in modern day Poland, between 1940 to 1945.

Shortly before the images were taken, the teenzager had been attacked by a female prison guard for not carrying out orders given to her in German.

Czesława died in the camp, reportedly from a fatal injection, just three months after her arrival.

Other works by Amaral, an expert in colourising black and white photos, are set to be published in the book The Colour of Time: A New History of the World 1850-1960 with historian Dan Jones in July.
