Roth, Marriane: An Intricate Collage

Roth, Marriane: An Intricate Collage

by Marianne Roth

Marianne Roth was born in 1920 in Upper Silesia. Her story encompasses much of the German-Jewish experience in the 20th Centur y, its social and intellectual prominence, and the inexorable rise of Nazism that swept it away. She describes her idyllic childhoodthat came to an end in the ‘30s and her escape, alone, to Australia, aged nineteen. In spite of the loneliness and hardships, a new life is forged. And throughout her life, the love and practice of art has nourished and sustained her. A community and life-style that no longer exists is deftly captured in these pages.
