CONCISE BIOGRAPHY

"I was born in Czechoslovakia in the year 1925, of traditional parents. I spent my youth partly in a little town on the Moravian border,

and to a greater part in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.
Having been attracted by the arts from early childhood on, I studied functional art at a school in Bratislava, as long as this was still possible

under the Nuremberg Laws which, at that time, were also in force in Slovakia.
In 1942 I was taken to a concentration camp in Poland and at the beginning of 1945 I succeeded in escaping together with a friend of mine.
Until our liberation by the Russians we were hiding in the forests of Northern Poland. At the end of the War I found myself wandering about Europe,

together with thousands of survivors from the Holocaust, until, in 1948 I came to Israel via the Camps of Cyprus.
From 1954 onwards I have been a permanent resident of the Artists Village at Ein-Hod, together with my family.
In the course of that time I studied and worked in most of the creative techniques of the arts.
During various periods of my life at Ein-Hod I taught painting and handicraft at different schools.
In 1965 I gave up teaching and have since devoted myself exclusively to pure art."
Gedalia Ben Zvi.
