At Elane Berk’s Home at 7:30 p.m.

We will be reading “The Lady in Gold” by Anne Marie O”Connor. This is a true story that inspired the movie “Woman in Gold” starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

This is the story of Adele Bloch-Bauer and Gustav Klimt’s portraits of her taken in Vienna.  They were looted by the Nazis, taken by Austria, and returned to Bloch-Bauer’s heirs in the 21st century.  The book captures the richness and liveliness of the lives of wealthy and cultured Jews of Vienna. Hitler’s march into Vienna created the scene of the Nazis looting massive amounts of art, homes, businesses and personal possessions including, The Lady in Gold. Years of work later, someone had the courage to fight the government to reclaim the family’s stolen art.
