Exhibit: New York Places, Jewish Spaces

March 28, 2012

Visit the Center for Jewish History for this special exhibit about Jews in New York, March 15-August 2012:

“Over their centuries-long relationship with New York City, Jews have carved out a multitude of public and private spaces as their own, including neighborhood streets, businesses, synagogues and tenement apartments, as well as the temporarily-Jewish stadiums, squares and concert halls that served as venues for special events. Discover the various identities of New York Jews (from the years 1700 – 2012) by exploring the spaces that they have created for themselves. Learn how Jews have shaped New York, how the largest city in the U.S. has molded the Jews and what Jewish spaces in the city reveal about the many varieties of “New York Jews” who have lived here.”

Researching Paul Huldschinsky

September 3, 2010

Paul HuldschinskyI am a German writer of biographies and am researching for years about Paul Huldschinsky (at left, a sketch drawn by Paul’s father, Oscar Huldschinsky].

Paul Huldschinsky fled Germany in 1938 and emigrated to California. He was responsible for the interior decorations of Thomas Mann’s house in Pacific Palisades, and as Art Director, he received the Oscar for the film “Gaslight” with Ingrid Bergmann.

I am looking for photos or pictures in magazines or newspapers of him and his work.
