Bernard ALTSCHULER

PARIS 1901 – DEPORTED TO AUSCHWITZ 1944

From his earliest childhood, Bernard Altschuler had a passion for painting and covered the walls of his bedroom with reproductions of Rembrandt’s paintings. After graduating high school, he joined the Frochot Art Academy and took a special interest in portraits.

In 1942, he found refuge in Nice and continued to paint. On 27 March 1944, he was deported on convoy number 70. He was murdered in Auschwitz.

His work has disappeared. His family in Paris kept some of his paintings.
