the polish-jewish writer and graphic artist Bruno Schulz was born on 12 july 1892 and shot dead by a NAZI officer on 19 november 1942, in Drohobycz.
in 1971, I chanced upon his literature: the cinnamon shops and under the sign of the hourglass (sanatorium klepsydra).
in 1983/84, 80 of my 300 etchings resulting from that encounter were touring through Poland.
on 24 february 1989, we established the Foundation Bruno Schulz Institute, which came to an end on 31 december 2016.
