Treasure Hunt: Finding the Lost Art Legacy of David Friedmann
Miriam Friedmann Morris in conversation with Liz Elsby
David Friedmann’s (1893-1980) life’s work was Nazi-looted: oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, etchings and lithographs. From childhood, Morris was drawn into her father’s epic life story, learning about his passion for art, his Holocaust experiences, and strong will to survive. Friedmann’s pursuit of justice inspired her quest to search for his lost art. With each new find, she gained insights into his life, an extraordinary view of his productive career amidst the rich, cultural life before Hitler. Each and every artwork tells a story, documents an event or captures the essence of a moment lost in time. Friedmann continues to live after his death via the passionate insistence of his art to emerge and be rescued from obscurity.
This program is in partnership with Classrooms Without Borders, Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Center, and the Jewish Historical Institute.
