Event description
With the help of historians, curators, and admirers of Moshe Rynecki's work, the artist's great-granddaughter rebuilds his collection.

About this Event

Before artist Moshe Rynecki was deported to the Warsaw Ghetto, he entrusted some 800 paintings to friends for safekeeping. After he was killed in the Majdanek concentration camp, the art was dispersed all over the world. With the help of historians, curators, and admirers of Moshe's work, filmmaker Elizabeth Rynecki sets out to find the remaining work of her great-grandfather. Spanning four generations, this compelling film is a moving narrative of the richness of one man's vision, the devastation of war, the impact art has on its viewers and owners, and one woman's unexpected path to healing.

Introduction by Simon Sibelman, Professor Emeritus of French at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and Professor Emeritus of French and Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies at Appalachian State University.
