German Eduard Hopf first was educated as a goldsmith, then studied painting in Hamburg and also had his studio there. In 1940, the Gestapo (Nazi police) searched his home and confiscated paintings and drawings. Nevertheless, he received permission to produce over 100 charcoal drawings of the destroyed town Lübeck, which in 1943 were shown in two exhibitions, using funds from the Nazi propaganda “against the enemy”. The same year his studio in Hamburg-Hamm was destroyed in an air raid and many of his works were burned. After World War II he illustrated his war experiences, the moving fate of frightened people, the war returnees and refugees in his paintings.
