Dorothea Rabkin (1921-2008), fled post-war Berlin with her twin sister, Rose. They had been hidden throughout World War II by brave families who risked themselves to give shelter to “hidden children” and thereby saved their lives. Landing in New York City by boat, Dorothea found her new country to be open-minded, welcoming and full of novelty. With her Cincinnati-born husband, Leo Rabkin, she built a life full of artist friends, trips to find American folk art and more. Our exhibition tells the story of Dorothea through photographs, memorabilia and works of art by Leo Rabkin, Philip Pearlstein, Ruth Vollmer and other artist friends.
