UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance Presents the Second installment of L.A. OMNIBUS

UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance (CAP UCLA) presents the second installment of L.A. Omnibus, a series featuring Los Angeles-based artists, writers and thinkers, with author Donna Rifkind on Thursday, October 8 at 7 p.m.

Between the wars, hundreds of German and Eastern European artists fled fascism and landed in Los Angeles – many to find refuge at the home of another émigré, screenwriter and activist Salka Viertel. Literary critic Donna Rifkind will discuss her biography of Viertel: The Sun and Her Stars: Salka Viertel and Hitler’s Exiles in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Donna’s research for the book spanned 10 years and multiple continents, where she uncovered the often-hidden stories of the artistic and intellectual refugees who influenced the Hollywood of the 1930s.
