Berlin/London: The Lost Photographs of Gerty Simon

The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide,
29 Russell Square
London
WC1B 5DP

30th May to 15th October 2019
Opening times: 10.00 – 17.00 (Mon-Fri)


The Wiener Library’s summer exhibition showcases the remarkable work of German Jewish photographer Gerty Simon, featuring many of her original prints from the 1920s and 1930s. Simon was a once-prominent photographer who captured many important political and artistic figures in Weimar Berlin including Lotte Lenya, Albert Einstein, Käthe Kollwitz and Alfred Kerr. After fleeing Nazi Germany in 1933, Simon rapidly re-established her studio in London, and portrayed many significant individuals there, such as: Sir Kenneth Clark, Peggy Ashcroft and Aneurin Bevan. For the first time in eighty years, the work of this pioneering photographer will be brought to public attention in this exhibition.
