Charcoal and watercolor sketch of six Orthodox Jewish males

Object | Accession Number: 2013.443.1

Watercolor sketch called Pozsony, Hungarian for Bratislava, Slovakia, of 6 Orthodox Jewish males created by Magda Frank, a professional sculpture, at an unknown date. Magda, 30, a native of Kolozsvar, Hungary (now Cluj-Napoca, Romania) was in Budapest attending art school when it was occupied by Nazi Germany in March 1944. Magda was relocated to a yellow star building and, in November, confined to the Jewish ghetto. In early 1945, Budapest was liberated by Soviet forces. In 1950, Magda emigrated to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to join her only surviving relative, a brother Stefan.
