Title: Marriage in Black

Artist’s Caption: My parents’ wedding on 14.5.1944, in the midst of WWII, in a synagogue in Budapest, Hungary. There was a rumor that young academic Jews will not be taken to forced labor camps if they marry, and since my father just finished his PhD in chemistry and since he and my mother were together for five years they decided to get married quickly.

Daniela Klauzner was a biologist until she started 11 years a go to create art. She lives in Natania.
