A Voice Silenced: An Exhibition by Diane Neumaier in Memory of Leonore Schwarz Neumaier

On view: 
Monday, May 24, 2004 - Sunday, September 19, 2004

Diane Neumaier, a New York photographer, found and reprinted black-and-white negatives of family snapshots taken by her father John (Hans) Neumaier when he was a boy in the 1930's in Frankfurt. The snapshots reflect the peaceful life of the middle-class family and, particularly, the domestic life of Diane Neumaier's grandmother, a famous Frankfurt opera singer who later perished in a concentration camp. This moving and original project is a collaboration between second and third generation survivors (father and daughter), combining historical, archival materials with a contemporary visual reframing of the Holocaust memory. 

A Voice Silenced is an exhibition by Diane Neumaier in memory of Leonore Schwarz Neumaier.
