Art Saving Lives In the Holocaust: The Prints of Emil Singer

January 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We’re incredibly excited about our next exhibit at the Michael Klahr Center.  Artist Henry Isaacs curates the story of his father and uncle, Emil Singer, who rescued hundreds of Jews from Austria after the Nazi annexation, paying for the rescues with the smuggling and sale of Emil’s prints until Emil himself, who refused to seek safety when others were in danger, was murdered in the Holocaust. Henry has spent many years tracking down the original prints that literally saved the lives of hundreds of others and will curate a powerful exhibit of rescue through art. The exhibit opens with a special event on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Come meet Henry and get a sneak preview of the exhibit!
