During the evacuation to Tashkent in 1941–1943 Nurenberg as a reporter captured the life of refugees. He sketched spontaneous observations in the road album, and then carefully redraw the outlines, having shaped them into finished compositions.
This way appeared the graphic series «From the travel sketches». Together with the «Anti-Fascist series» it was presented at the personal exhibition of Nuremberg in the Moscow Central House of Writers (ZDL) in 1945. It was also included into his personal exhibition in Moscow in 1961. The works from this series are at the Tretyakov Gallery, Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of Armed Forces (former Museum of the Red Army).
