Doctor Klaus Voigt (1938-2021) devoted much of his long life to studying Jewish refugees from Nazi-Germany who escaped to Italy. Among his countless books and essays, his most well-known books (Zuflucht auf Widerruf / Il rifugio precario) are a must for every scholar dealing with similar subjects. Since the Ninties, he was a member of the executive board of the Fondazione villa Emma in Nonantola (Modena). He published a lot about the group of Jewish children who lived there from 1942 to 1943 after their escape from Nazi- occupied Europe, fully integrated in this little town, where they where even given hospitality in the priests’ seminary, the convent of nuns, by several families after September 8th 1943, while preparing their escape to Switzerland. Doctor Voigt organized several photo-exhibitions about this story in more than forty cities in Europe. As an art lover, he organized exhibitions both in Florence and Berlin featuring Jewish artists and intellectuals. He was working on the biography of a Jewish painter, whose works will be exhibited in 2023 at Palazzo Pitti, when he died.
