Art in Exile: The Leo Yeni Collection


Leo Yeni was born into a family of Greek Jews in Milan, Italy, in 1920. In 1943, with the persecution of Jews in Italy continuing to worsen, he fled to Switzerland, where the authorities placed him in an internment camp. In this episode of Curators Corner, Kyra Schuster shares the artwork Leo created to document life in the camp with his fellow refugees.
