Brigitte Salberg

The painter of the New Objectivity


Brigitte Salberg, daughter of Ilse Salberg, was given to the Family Dr. Hans Curjel at age 11 after her internment to Eriswil in February 1942.

Dr. Hans Curjel and Anton Räderscheidt new each other from Berlin. Afterwards Brigitte came to new foster parents of the family Einar Nielsen and was lastly brought into the foster home Aeugst. The foster parents gave their all for the well being of their foster child, which becomes apparent through intense correspondence. Without this civil courage, Brigittes stay would not have been as pleasant, even though being apart from her parents was very painful for her.
