To follow: Miriam Capaldo will share the story of the woman and artist Charlotte Salmon, a Berlin-born Jewish woman who, in less than two years, created over a thousand tempera paintings that tell, with exceptional creativity, the story of her life. Having fled to France in an effort to escape the German Nazis, and after a life marked by family tragedies, she was captured by the Gestapo and deported to Auschwitz where she died soon after her arrival, at just 26 years old.
