Unwrapped Gifts

Author(s):

Born in Berlin in 1917, Charlotte Salomon grew up in an increasingly tense world. With the rise of Nazism and as family secrets unravel, Unwrapped Gifts asks the question: can art save one’s soul? A portrait emerges of a woman and artist haunted by death, unattainable love, and a world at the abyss. Out of the blackness surrounding her, Charlotte Salomon found light and hope.
