Sieg Maandag (1937-2013) was seven years old when he was released from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. His father was killed there, his mother survived camp Beendorf and was reunited with him. Sieg’s family were diamond dealers. After the war he lives a rich life. He learns the craft of diamond, travels the world, falls in love, sings in night clubs, paints hundreds of paintings, and makes ceramics. This book focuses on his paintings and ceramics. Maandag's work cannot be viewed separately from his trauma of Bergen-Belsen, his art is troubled and beneficial at the same time.
