Peter Zvi Malkin Museum of European Jewish Art
The Peter Zvi Malkin Museum of European Jewish Art pays tribute to the lives and art of great European Jewish artists,
including the great European Jewish artists who painted during the Holocaust. The museum carries the name of, and is
dedicated in memory of, Peter Zvi Malkin (1927-2005), a daring Jewish hero and artist who dedicated his life to helping
the Jewish People and the State of Israel.
A lead member of the Mossad team that captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1960,
Peter Zvi Malkin was instrumental in planning and executing the successful capture of Eichmann. The art Malkin created
as he sat in a safe house with Eichmann in Buenos Aires tells the story of a man haunted by the memory of his sister and
her young children murdered during the Holocaust.
A selfless man with a strong sense of justice, a brilliant and creative mind, and a daring and courageous spirit, Malkin put
his life at risk time after time to serve the Jewish People and the State of Israel and is one of the greatest heroes in the
history of the Jewish People.
