Lecture: Artist as Witness—Holocaust Survivor David Friedmann’s Journey

Miriam Friedmann Morris will discuss her father’s work and life. David Friedmann (1893-1980) was a Holocaust survivor who found a new purpose in life in fighting anti-Semitism and racial hatred through painting the horrors he had witnessed.  An accomplished painter renowned for his portraits and a leading Berlin press artist of the 1920s, he was banned from his profession after the Nazis came to power. Immigrating to America in the 1950s, his skills brought him a new career painting the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales.

Doors open at 9:30 AM

Please note that the JCC will be closed on Monday, September 28 in observance of Yom Kippur.
