My Paintings, My Memories, My Message...
Hanka Kornfeld was born in Bedzin, Poland, in 1928. 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 before being moved along to other camps. She was saved because Auschwitz was too crowded to accept any more prisoners at the time. After the war, she settled in Santiago, Chile, where she raised a family, developed and managed a jewelry business, and studied painting. Her expressive paintings have been prominently displayed at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, as well as in galleries around the country.
