 Art in the Cathedral

The art on our walls during this period of Lent is a Stations of the Cross exhibition by renowned artist Arnold Daghani (22 February 1909 – 6 April 1985), a Romanian-born Jewish artist, writer and Holocaust survivor. In 1941 he and his wife Anisoara were arrested and sent to the Nazi labour camp of Mikhailowka in Ukraine in 1941. While there Daghani chronicled his experiences in a diary and artwork which he managed to smuggle with himself when he escaped to Budapest in 1943. In 1947 he published these, first in Romanian, Groapa este în livada de visini, later translated into English under the title The Grave is in the Cherry Orchard. After the war, he lived in Israel, France, Switzerland, and England.Throughout his life, Daghani worked in a wide range of media, techniques and styles, returning to subjects such as memory, religion and his experiences in the labour camp.
