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-siècle Vienna, her dramatic escape from Nazi terror and her courageous fight to recover the five Klimts against all the odds.
