Lost Stories, Found Images: Portraits of Jews in Wartime Amsterdam by Annemie Wolff
Start Date: 1/9/2018 All Day
End Date: 3/23/2018
Event Description:
German-born Dutch photographer Annemie Wolff took formal portraits of Amsterdam’s Jews at a time of great danger both for her and for her
subjects during the German occupation of The Netherlands. Some of these photos were taken for false papers to aid these individuals in their escape. Other images were taken as mementos for friends, relatives in camps or of remembrances of children when parents went into hiding. These
previously lost works, rediscovered in 2008 by Dutch photo historian Simon Kool, help illuminate an untold story of Jewish life in Amsterdam during the Holocaust.
This exhibition is supported by the Van Thyn lecture series, which honors Rose and Louis Van Thyn, Holocaust survivors who dedicated
themselves to retelling their stories so that people would not forget or repeat those horrors.
