Menachem Lemberger

Berger (1938-1998) was born in Krakow, Poland, to a Hasidic family, and at the age of 4 his parents were sent to the death camp in Auschwitz, where he was adopted by his grandmother. With the assistance of soldiers of the Jewish Brigade he immigrated to Israel, and two years later his grandmother joined him and together they moved to the remains of the Menashiya neighborhood, between Jaffa and Tel Aviv.
Already in high school he was forced to work as a diamond polisher and in 1962 began studying at the Avni Institute, where he also served as a teacher in 1972-1987. At the end of his studies, he stood out from the rest of his classmates and was praised by art critics at the time for his unique works characterized by formal cleanliness and minimalism.
