OPENING OF THE EXHIBIION
Saturday, February 26th at 11am
at the Willy Brandt Center Jerusalem, 22 Ein Rogel Street
Kirszenbaum’s caricatures caught the spirit of the Weimar Republic and are today as relevant as ever. Ruthless businessmen, corrupt politiicians, the fight for gender equality and the battle against antisemitism are sadly still topics of our world today.
Jecheskiel David Kirszenbaum (1900-1954) was without doubt a painter and caricaturist of highest artistic quality, who first gained reputatation at the Bauhaus in Weimar and whose art was later celebrated in Berlin and Paris.
His touching life story takes us from his childhood in the Polish shtetl to the internatinonal Parisian art scene of Montmartre followed by persecution by the National Socialists, immense losses, most dramatically the murder of his wife in Auschwitz.
The opening will take place Saturday, February 26th at 11am in presence of J.D. Kirszenbaum’s nephew Nathan Diament.
The Exhibition can be seen at the Willy Brandt Center until March 20, 2022
