Berlin (bbp) Hilda Lubowski, the first wife of the sculptor Josef Thorak, is in art history a book sealed with seven seals. Hilda was a sister of the Jewish physician, Dr. Oskar Lubowski in Berlin, who was for a long time the personal doctor of the film director and actress Leni Riefenstahl.
Thorak got a divorce from his Jewish wife at the beginning of the National Socialist times in Germany, as is also mentioned in Leni Riefenstahl's memoires . She emigrated from Germany. The Josef Thorak Archives would like to posthumously honor this first wife of the sculptor. We are searching for her children. All information about this courageous woman should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
