War prison in Poland
Oil on cardboard, 10 x 14"
Signed and dated 1908 (1918)

Zakhiem was captured by the Germans and was put in a prison camp; however he escaped several times,  each time he
returned to his art studies.

After his last escape he made his way to the city of Danzig (Gdansk} where he studied with well known Polish artist Enrico Glichtenstien.

In 1941 Bernard moved with his family to Sebastopol, California where he worked continuously until his death in 1985.  
The Holocaust had a deep effect on Bernard Zakheim. 
He lost over 300 members of his family including his mother. 
Much of his works after the late 1940's was concerned with the Holocaust and the fight against Fascism.
