Arthur Langerman

Arthur Langerman, a collector of documents on anti-Semitism, was born in 1942 to an Antwerp Jewish family. In March 1944, his parents were deported to Auschwitz. After the war, he reunited with his mother and grew up in Belgium.

Like many of his contemporaries, it is in 1961, at the time of Eichmann’s trial, that he took the full measure of the horror of the Holocaust. It was from that moment that he became a collector and started putting together a collection of 7,000 documents, posters, newspapers or artifacts on the theme of anti-Semitism.

The exhibition “1886 - 1945, Heinous cartoons or the anti-Semitic corrosion“ showcases part of this exceptional collection.
