Stealing Klimt - The Documentary behind ''The Woman In Gold''

Spiro Ark and Central Synagogue are proud to present: The true story behind "The Woman In Gold"

The documentary of the dramatic story of the long struggle by Maria Altmann, an elegant elderly Viennese lady, to recover five Klimt paintings stolen from her family by the Nazis in 1938. The five Klimts were transferred to the Austrian National Gallery where they hung for decades after the War.
The paintings included the iconic "Woman in Gold", the portrait of Maria's aunt, Adele Bloch-Bauer, which became known as the "Mona Lisa of Austria". This David and Goliath story chronicles Maria's early life in glittering fin-de-si├Ęcle Vienna, her dramatic escape from Nazi terror and her courageous fight to recover the five Klimts against all the odds.

Documentary screening followed by Q&A session with the Producer

Baghdadian Jews of Bombay by Rachel Manasseh***BOOK LAUNCH***
Baghdadian Jews of Bombay - Their life and achievements: A personal and historical account
An exciting narrative of the two hundred year sojourn of the Baghdadian Jewish Community in the cosmopolitan city of Bombay (today's Mumbai), India. From their early beginnings, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, they established a lively community embracing brethren arriving from the Middle East and central Asia. They left their legacy in the city, with beneficent contributions and involvement in civic life and made their mark nationally in Indian film. Their gradual dispersal followed Indian Independence, to English-speaking countries and to the newly established State of Israel. Today, the synagogues with clock towers and steeples, the 'Queen necklace' at Marine Drive, the Gateway of India, Apollo Bunder, the Prince of Wells Museum, Cuffe Parade, Flora Fountain, and Crawford Market are landmarks which still remain - albeit renamed in some cases - along with a small nucleus of the original community. ...
