NYC exhibit of Nazi-looted art tells a tale of Jewish loss and recovery

In 1937, the Nazi Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda removed Marc Chagall’s “Purim” from the walls of the Museum of Folkwang in Essen, Germany. Depicting people exchanging food and sweets, the vibrant painting was deemed “degenerate” and summarily sold to a Berlin art collector and Nazi party member.

Now, 75 years after the end of World War II, the painting is one of 53 works of art and 80 ceremonial objects on display at New York’s Jewish Museum.

Rena will be our personal guide…recounting how these works withstood the violence of war, as the exhibition details their often-complicated postwar rescue.

It will be as good as being there -just without the hassle!

Meet Rena and hear a little about the exhibit!
