In Search of a Lost Childhood - The Cruel Fate of Bruno Schulz

We took part in a documentary of German TV Deutsche Welle by Matthias Frickel, about how artists around the world are inspired by the life and creation of Bruno Schulz. Among artists are also Benjamin Geissler, Jonathan Safran Foer, Claudia Philipp, Mariusz Kubielas and ”Bruno Schulz” Polish rock band.

The tragically short life of writer and artist Bruno Schulz has been summarized: "Born an Austrian, lived as a Pole and died as a Jew." Revered as the "Polish Kafka", many of the modernist master's dreamlike, mystical drawings and paintings were feared lost.
