Miriam Friedman Morris

Miriam Friedman Morris is the daughter of Auschwitz survivors David and Hildegard Friedman(n). 


David Friedman painted so the world would not forget. After her father’s death in 1980, she felt a profound responsibility to carry on his mission—to show his Holocaust art to the world. 


Art shaped her life and her fascination with her father’s Nazi-looted art launched a quest to find works and ensure David Friedman’s rightful place in history. Her pursuit launched a worldwide revival of an artist obscured by the Nazi regime. It even led to “Holocaust Diary” an episode on the Fox Business News show, Strange Inheritance. 


Morris, who lives in New York, facilitates exhibitions, lectures and writes — and is dedicated to the preservation of her father’s art legacy. She has co-written a book and is a recognized lecturer and author of several articles. Morris is currently writing a book about her father’s art journey.
