Nathalie KRAEMER

PARIS 1891 – DEPORTED TO AUSCHWITZ 1943

Nathalie Kraemer was born into a Polish Jewish family in Paris, where her parents had taken refuge. From a young age, she took an interest in art and poetry. In 1926, she was awarded a literary prize and published a book titled Rising Voices (it cannot be found today). She devoted most of her time to painting, and participated in several exhibitions at the Salon des Tuileries and at the Salon des Indépendants. She was particularly productive between 1936 and 1938. During the war, Nathalie Kraemer hid but continued to paint. In 1943, she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz. Some of her paintings were saved by the collector Mr Granziani. Today, her paintings can be found at Haifa University (collection Oscar Guez) in Israel, and at the Petit Palais museum in Geneva.
