AACI CENTRAL REGION
Visit to the Joseph Bau Museum
**Registration deadline: Sunday April 25**
Right in the heart of Tel Aviv is the authentic artist workshop of Joseph Bau, whose wide range of creativity included movies, animation, painting, graphics, literature, and research of the Hebrew language.
Rebecca and Joseph Bau survived the Holocaust and were the couple whose wedding is shown in the movie Schindler’s List. His work as a graphic artist in the Ghetto and camps enabled him to forge documents and identity papers that allowed hundreds of Jews to escape. Only after his death it was revealed that he also worked for the Mossad as a graphic artist who forged documents for Israeli spies, including Eli Cohen.
His daughters have turned his workshop into a museum where you can see animated movies, the original equipment he himself built to create them, his paintings and graphic art, all this accompanied by fascinating stories told by his daughters with humor and a smile. The visit (in English) will take about 90 minutes.
**Admission only to holders of the green vaccination certificate**
We will meet on Sunday, 2 May 2021 at 11.45am. The tour starts at 12 noon.
