Around 700 paintings and drawings by a Jewish painter murdered during the Holocaust have been uncovered in a house in a Prague suburb that was being torn down.
The works by Gertrud Kauders, who studied at Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts, were found behind walls and under floorboards. Kauders’ great-niece, who lives in New Zealand, told RFE/RL that surviving family members were amazed by the discovery.
