Hidden History Revealed: Through the Lens of Arthur Rothstein

Arthur Rothstein played a pivotal role in the New Deal photo-documentary project that became our nation’s collective memory of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. This was prelude to his sensitive photo-essay depicting the Jewish refugee community stranded in Shanghai after WWII.

In this illustrated talk, the photographer’s daughter, Dr. Ann Rothstein Segan, will illuminate the path that led her father to China, and then back home to a career that shaped the visual culture of post-war America during the Golden Age of picture magazines. This program is presented in conjunction with Holocaust Museum LA’s special exhibition, Hidden History: Recounting the Shanghai Jewish Story.

Hidden History: Recounting the Shanghai Jewish Story is sponsored by the East West Bank Foundation and the Carl K. Moy and Linda C. Moy Family Foundation.
