Bruno Schulz: Art, Murder & the Hijacking of History

28 April 2024 | 1hr 01

Bruno Schulz was born an Austrian, lived as a Pole and died a Jew. Without moving he was a subject of the Habsburgs, the West Ukrainian People’s Republic, the Second Polish Republic, the USSR and, finally, the Third Reich. But the artist and man described by Isaac Bashevis Singer as “one of the most remarkable writers who ever lived” remained throughout a citizen of the Republic of Dreams. Benjamin Balint, winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature and co-author of Jerusalem: City of the Book, joins us with a fresh portrait and a gripping account of the secret operation to rescue his last artworks and will be in conversation with Toby Lichtig.Buy a copy of Bruno Schulz by Benjamin Balint
