Miriam Friedman Morris

Miriam Friedman Morris is the daughter of Auschwitz survivors David and Hildegard Friedman(n). Art shaped her life. Fascination with her father’s Nazi-looted art launched a four-decade quest to find lost works and ensure his rightful place in history. Her pursuit launched a worldwide revival of an artist obscured by the Nazi regime. It even led to an episode “Holocaust Diary” on the Fox Business News show, Strange Inheritance. Morris, who lives in New York, facilitates exhibitions, lectures and writes — and is dedicated to the preservation of her father’s art legacy. She has co-written a book, traveled the world, is a recognized lecturer and author of several articles. A new Holocaust documentary by Emmy Award Winner John Rokosny is currently in production with the working title, “The Art and Survival of David Friedmann”. Morris is currently writing a book about her father’s life through art: http://z.umn.edu/davidfriedmann.
