Another piece of the story...
Sadness & Hope
Paintings by a father and son
hiding during the holocaust
In 1944, after being in hiding for two years, Eva's entire family
was betrayed and put on a train to Auschwitz.
It was on this train that Eva's brother Heinz told her he had hidden paintings that he and their father created while in hiding.
After Eva and her mother survived the horrors of Auschwitz, they found the paintings under the attic floor with a note that read: "property of Eric and Hein Geiringer from Amsterdam, who are in hiding and will collect the items after the war."
We are thrilled to present an exhibition of paintings by Heinz and Erich on loan from the Danville Station Museum.
