Harry Sternberg: A Centennial Celebration
Sternberg had watched the deteriorating political situation in Europe with mounting horror since the early 1930s, and campaigned against fascism as an active member of the American Artists’ Congress. His personal fears of the rise of European fascism were justified; most of his mother’s family, who were Hungarian Jews, died in the Holocaust.
