Narrator: Koerner, who was Jewish, was born in Vienna, and had to flee when the Nazis invaded. He was the only member of his family to survive the war. He came to New York, but returned to Europe during the war as part of the U.S. Army. Later, in 1946, he visited his native city and found that the building where he’d grown up had been destroyed. He painted Mirror of Life that same year.
