HANKA KORNFELD-MARDER "MY PAINTINGS, MY MEMORIES, MY MESSAGE...:HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE BOOK OF PAINTINGS"Ms. Kornfeld was born in Bendzin, Poland, in 1928. In 1941, at the young age of 13, she was taken on a transport train to Auschwitz. The train remained on the railroad track at the station for three days and nights, before being moved along to other camps. She was saved because Auschwitz, at the time, was too crowded to accept any more prisoners.
After the war she settled in Santiago, Chile, where she raised a family, developed and managed a jewelry business and studied painting. Her paintings have their own set of feelings and emotions, that both capture and touch the heart, establishing a link between past, present and her hopes for a better future.
Her paintings have been prominently displayed at the United Nations headquarters in New York City as well as galleries around the country.
