During World War II, untold numbers of artworks and cultural property were stolen by Nazi forces, and after the war, an estimated one million artworks and 2.5 million books were recovered. Many more were destroyed.
Sam Sackeroff, Lerman-Neubauer Assistant Curator for the Jewish Museum, will explore the stories of the objects looted from Jewish families during the war including works by such renowned artists as Marc Chagall, Paul Cézanne, Franz Marc, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Camille Pissarro in this lecture. Utilizing research conducted for the exhibit Afterlives, Sackeroff illuminates surviving artworks and other precious objects moved through time, bearing witness to profound historical ruptures while also acting as enduring carriers of individual expression, knowledge, and creativity.
