The portrait of the well–known Tarnow philanthropist, Debora Wechsler z”l (who passed away in 1887). Until the outbreak of the Second World War it was hung in the reception area of the Jewish hospital in Tarnow. In her will the noble philanthropist bequeathed her two large houses in Tarnow– on Folwarczna and Nowa Streets - to the Jewish community, on condition that the income from the houses should go towards maintaining the Jewish hospital in Tarnow. Located in one of the houses on Nowa Street were the offices of the Jewish community. The portrait was found by our young Bergman in a Christian house in Tarnow.
