    All day

    Do join us for our first exciting meeting of the year on January 10, 2019!

    We have a great speaker Dr. Irene Guenther with a topic that has affected all of us in one way or another: “The remarkable, haunting Life of Otto Schubert: a 20th century story.” Otto Schubert was a painter, graphic artist, illustrator, and draftsman, whose work was included in the infamous Entartete Kunst show, organized in Munich in 1937 by Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. He was born in Dresden and lived, studied, and worked there most of his life. When he was just 22 years old, he was drafted into the army for WW I. From those fields of devastation he sent hauntingly beautifully painted postcards to his sweetheart Irma. You may recall that we visited the exhibit of some of the postcards some years back.

    Dr. Irene Guenther painstakingly researched his art and life and wrote a wonderful book about Otto Schubert: Postcards from the Trenches: A German Soldier’s Testimony of the Great War. Come and hear how Guenther’s research took her into many different places, including attics and basements in the former East Germany, and what she found out about Schubert’s life until his death in 1970.
