Biography Horst Strempel
Horst Strempel was born in Upper Silesia in 1904 and studied painting at the Wroclaw Academy of Fine Arts, from 1921 to 1929. Thereupon he was active in Paris until 1931. After a short stay in Berlin, he finally emigrated to Paris in 1933. Here, he was especially commissioned as a cartoonist by several French newspapers, including, for instance, Le Monde.
In 1936, Strempel corresponded with the ‘Freie Künstlerbund’, founded by exiled Germans in 1936. Due to his arrest as an ‘enemy in exile’ he was sent to several internment camps, including Gurs. In 1941 Strempel was finally delivered by the Vichy regime to the Gestapo, which was followed by an English captivation from 1944 to 1945.
