Rita says: “We really love your project, and since we have a lot of teachers and artists in our family, we really wanted to have the work of Amos Nir. Now this Jew will play the violin in our Prenzlauer Berg - on the street where the events of Hans Fallada's novel "Everyone Dies Alone" took place. For me, this is how the circle closes - Jews, communists, Germans, Russians, Moscow, Berlin, Tel Aviv and the work of Amos Nir".

Artworks by Dr. Amos Nir

1924 - 2014, Kefar Sava, Israel

Dr. Nir painted and carved wood at home on his own almost to the end in 2014. His widow has more than 100 works left, which she wants to donate to our Museum. The only thing is very important for her to know who will keep her husband's works, and we promised her that. Some of his works are already on display in Moscow, Berlin, Toronto, Brussels.
