News from Berlin. From November 22, 2013 to March 23, 2014, one can admire a vibrant collection of black-and-white photographs by Jewish German-Born photographer Fred Stein at the Jewish Museum Berlin. The exhibition is supported by the US Embassy in Berlin.
In 1933, the Jewish German-born photographer had to flee Germany and went with his family to Paris, where he opened his own photographic studio. In 1941, the outbreak of the Second World War forced Stein and his family to emigrate to New York.
Exhibition ‘In an Instant’ shows black-and-white photographs of street scenes of Paris and New York as well as numerous portraits of the German émigré community, such as Marlene Dietrich, Thomas Mann, Hannah Arendt, and Albert Einstein, Willy Brandt, former German Chancellor, referred to Fred Stein as “a brilliant photographer inspired by his quest for justice and his concern for truth so clearly reflected in his photographs”.
