SUSAN LUDMER-GLIEBE

Special to The Jewish News

harlotte Salomon was
born in Berlin in the
spring of 1917. Her
mother committed sui-
cide when she was nine.
In 1935 Salomon was admitted to the
State Academy of Fine Arts where she
distinguished herself artistically and
academically. As the Nazi presence
intensified, her father feared for her
safety. She was sent to southern
France where her grandparents were

living. There, in the pastoral beauty
of the countryside Salomon abandon-
ed herself, obsessively, to her art. Her
pictures uniquely recorded her per-
sonal history: her childhood and fami-
ly; her joys, fears and sorrows; the
madness of the times. France proved
to be no haven for Salomon. She died
in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. She
was 26 years old.
Before Salomon was taken by the
Nazis she gave 769 gouaches, many
with scribbled descriptive texts, to a
gentile friend for safekeeping saying,
"C'est toute ma vie." (It's all my life.)

These gouaches have survived. They
are a visual testament to her life.
They are deeply moving.
Few Americans have heard of
Salomon. No American museum has
holdings of her works. All the
posthumous exhibits of Salomon's
paintings have been held in Europe
and Israel.
But Salomon's legacy hasn't been
forgotten. Next week, in conjunction
with the Ninth Annual Conference on
the Holocaust at the University of
Michigan, a dance-theater work, bas-
ed on Salomon's life and work will be
