Jules Adler (1865-1952) was born into an Alsatian Jewish family at Luxeuil-les-Bains in Franche-Comté. The powerful and singular oeuvre of this painter of the second naturalist generation is little known to the public today, yet one of his pictures, The Strike at Le Creusot (1899), became an iconic image of the workers’ struggle and has been frequently reproduced in history books.

Rosine Cahen (1857-1933) was born in Delme, a small town in Lorraine that had been home to a Jewish community since the end of the 17th century. She arrived in Paris in 1871, when her family opted for French nationality, as did 25% of the Jews in the territories annexed at the time by Germany.
