Drawn from the art collection of the Leo Baeck Institute – New York | Berlin (LBI), this exhibition presents paintings created in exile by German-speaking Jews and other targets of Nazi persecution. Showcasing a range of painting styles from the 20th century, it tells the stories of creative individuals uprooted from their homelands, who tried to rebuild their life and career in new lands.
