A major exhibition based on de Waal's celebrated family memoir is set to open this winter at The Jewish Museum in New York. Designed by award-winning architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, this immersive exhibition brings together pieces from the Ephrussi’s collections from across the world to examine the ways in which objects can function as storytellers, symbols of resilience, and monuments of a family legacy.

The centrepiece is the extraordinary collection of Japanese netsuke, hidden by a maid who concealed them from German officials in her mattress, and later returned them to the family after the war. The collection has since been handed down to subsequent generations, serving as a connection between the past and the present.
