Exhibition of works by a Holocaust survivor

Museum of New Hampshire History in Concord (USA) soon will represent a selection from a poignant collection of art and artifacts created by a Holocaust survivor. An untitled oil painting created by artist Armand H. Szainer, Jewish refugee leaving Nazi-occupied France will be on display in the entry hall of the museum.

The collection, all relating to Szainer’s life and witnessing of the Holocaust features pottery, drawings, paintings and manuscripts. In addition to a diverse range of paintings and drawings, the collection includes examples of unique figural stoneware pottery created by Szainer for Chanukah and Shabbat rituals. The collection also comprises publications, correspondence, photographs and items documenting Szainer’s family in early 20th-century Europe, as well as his commissions for movie advertisements, stage sets and murals. The selection of items from the Szainer collection is on display through December.
