Biography  
Jan Muller


Jan Muller was born in Germany in 1922. When he was ten years old, the Nazis arrested his father for campaigning against Hitler, and though friends managed to secure his release through bribery, the elder Muller realized that he and his family had to flee. The Mullers went to Prague, only to find the city overburdened with refugees already. 

Life became one long search for a home, Switzerland, Amsterdam, Paris. When World War II broke out, the French interned the boy as a German; when the French surrendered, he fled the Nazis again. In time he got to Spain, to Lisbon and finally to the United States.

He worked as a dishwasher, a factory worker, a day-camp instructor, and in 1945 he decided to devote himself to painting.   ...  Displaying 750 of 7619 characters.
