“In 2015, l held an exhibition at the LJCC reflecting on my parents who thought of themselves as ‘Proud Germans of the Jewish Persuasion’. My father, who won the Iron Cross as a pilot in the First World War felt committed to his country – until he heard Goebbels at a rally. He realised that there was no future for Jews in Germany. If only his relatives had heeded his warnings. They perished in the Holocaust. My images convey the comfortable settled life of middle-class Jewry in Germany and the gradual feeling of unease, separation and persecution that overcame them. This exhibition is a small selection of my work around this topic.”
