a Jewish artist, painter, sculptor, and engraver, who is best known for being a chronicler of Jewish life in the small Polish village,
or Shtetl Kazimierz-Dolny in southern Poland, where he was born, and painter of Holocaust era art. Chaim Goldberg grew up in Kazimierz-Dolny.
His drawings were discovered on the walls of his father's shoemaker workshop 1931 by Saul Silberstein - a student of Sigmund Freud
who was doing post doctorate work on his book, Jewish Village Mannerisms. Chaim and Silberstein left for Krakow with a large collection
of the art in portfolios. Silberstein contacted influential individuals to provide support to the fourteen-year-old artist. Wealthy patrons, such as,
a Judge and a newspaper publisher sponsored his education at the "Jozef Mehoffer School for Fine Arts", Krakow, from which he graduated
in 1935, and later at the "Academy of Fine Arts" in Warsaw, where he was the youngest student (at 17) to enter the school, from which he
graduated in 1938. World War II interrupted his artistic development, and he became a refugee in Siberia. He went to cole des Beaux-Arts,
Paris, France on a fellowship from the Polish Government from 1947-1949, and then in 1955, he and his wife Rachel with their two sons,
Victor and Shalom were allowed to leave Communist Poland, despite a protest from the Ministry of Culture, and emigrated to Israel.
In 1967, Goldberg arrived in the United States, with a two-year business visa on an exhibition trip.
