SOUTHAMPTON JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL JULY 17, 2018
The Heir July 17  7:30 pm (2017) Canada, 55 minutes, English Subtitles Guest Speaker Lucian Simmons
It is 1938, the annexation of Austria by the Germans. For Georges Jorisch, a 10-year old Austrian Jew, a long nightmare begins. He follows his father in exile, leaving behind his mother and grandmother, none of whom he will ever see again. Both women will die in the camps while the Nazis seize their entire family heritage, including the grandmothers collection of paintings. After the war, now an orphan and without a country to call his own, Georges Jorisch emigrates to Canada, where he will raise four children in trying conditions. But then, in 1998, at the age of 70, he decides to trace two of the great master Gustav Klimts paintings that belonged to his grandmother. This decision marks the beginning of a fabulous quest which will last a dozen years and be faced with unsurmountable obstacles. The Heir is the story of this man who waited his whole life to see justice done, a man who became an inspiration to Edith Jorisch, his granddaughter and the director of this documentary. If you loved Lady in Gold, this is a must see.
Lucian Simmons is a Senior Vice President of Sothebys North America based in New York and is head of Sothebys Worldwide Restitution team involved in the field of looted art. He worked closely with the late George Jorisch for many years,  and assisted him in the restitution and sale of the two stolen Klimt masterworks,  Kirche in Cassone and Litzlberg am Attersee.
Mr Simmons is a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales.  He has given evidence to the House of Commons, to the European Parliament, and to the Prague Conference on Holocaust Era Assets. He works extensively with art collectors and their advisors throughout North America and Europe and has been instrumental  in the sale of some of the most significant artworks to come to auction in recent years including, The Scream by Edvard Munch and Bildnis Gertha Felsöványi by Gustav Klimt.
