(?-1944)


BiographyWorks

Little is known about this Jewish artist, except that he was interned in the Lodz ghetto, where he depicted figures of suffering children. Some of his works are to be found in the collection of Beit Lohamei Haghetaot (the Ghetto Fighters' House Museum). Szwarc was deported to Auschwitz in 1944 and died there.
