      Gino Parin, pseudonimo di Federico Guglielmo Jehuda Pollack (Trieste, 1876 - Bergen-Belsen, 1944), è stato un pittore italiano.

      Dopo gli studi a Trieste, completò la sua formazione a Monaco di Baviera, dove presentò le sue opere. Di origine ebraica, fu perseguitato per motivi razziali e morì nel campo di concentramento di Bergen-Belsen, in Germania.

      Agli inizi del '900 la sua produzione grafica si orientò verso la caricatura, rifacendosi al genere vignettistico e alla satira della borghesia tipicamente tedesca. Durante la Prima guerra mondiale realizzò una nutrita serie di ritratti della poetessa Fanny Lackenbacher, moglie dell'ingegnere ebreo Moise Mario Tedeschi e di altri soggetti, eseguiti con il carboncino o la matita grassa. Fu un buon ritrattista, accurato nella soluzione tecnica e attento all'espressione dei volti, che valorizzò con un buon senso della luce e inquadrature originali. Nel 1913, all'Internazionale di Monaco di Baviera, gli fu conferita la seconda medaglia d'oro per la pittura.

      Tra le due guerre Parin tenne mostre a Vienna e a Trieste, esponendo anche alla Biennale di Venezia, mentre all'Internazionale Quadriennale di Torino del 1923 gli fu conferita la medaglia d'oro per la pittura italiana.
    • During the 1920's Gino was active, exibiting in important Italian shows abroad and maintained close ties with Germany. He concentrated on portraits of women in interiors. The 1938 racial laws prohibited him from exhibiting and although he had obtained Swiss citizenship, he was deported to Germany in 1944. He became ill during the voyage and died shortly after arriving at Bergen-Belsen, Germany.

      The following is what was going on in Bergen-Belsen at the time of his arrival.

      Bergen-Belsen (or Belsen) was a Nazi concentration camp in what is today Lower Saxony in northwestern Germany, southwest of the town of Bergen near Celle. Originally established as a prisoner of war camp, in 1943 parts of it became a concentration camp. Originally this was an "exchange camp", where Jewish hostages were held with the intention of exchanging them for German prisoners of war held overseas. Eventually, the camp was expanded to accommodate Jews from other concentration camps.

      Later still the name was applied to the displaced persons camp established nearby, but it is most commonly associated with the concentration camp. From 1941 to 1945 almost 20,000 Russian prisoners of war and a further 50,000 inmates died there, with up to 35,000 of them dying of typhus in the first few months of 1945, shortly before and after the liberation.

      The camp was liberated on April 15, 1945 by the British 11th Armoured Division. They discovered around 53,000 prisoners inside, most of them half-starved and seriously ill, and another 13,000 corpses lying around the camp unburied. The horrors of the camp, documented on film and in pictures, made the name "Belsen" emblematic of Nazi crimes in general for public opinion in Western countries in the immediate post-1945 period.

    • From the Jewish Traveler

      ....... Return to Via San Sebastiano and turn left (here it is called Via di Cavana) and right on Via San Giorgio. At Piazza Hortis, stop to see the bronze sculpture of Svevo in front of his beloved public library. Then continue on Via San Giorgio to reach the Revoltella Museum Gallery of Modern Art (27 Via Diaz; 39-40-675-4350), housed in what was once the palazzo of Baron Revoltella. The works of FIVE JEWS are displayed prominently: Arturo Nathan (1891-1944), GINO PARIN born Federico Pollack (1876-1944), Vittorio (Haim) Bolaffio (1883-1931), Arturo Rietti (1863-1943) and Isidoro Gruenhut (1862-1898).

      The Jewish cemetery, dating back to 1843, is in the southern part of the city (4 Via della Pace). In death, as in life, Trieste's wealthiest families, including the Morpurgos, are housed in lavish structures. On the site is a Holocaust memorial, twin pillars of stone inscribed with area victims names. Interred in the cemetery are Elio Schmitz (the brother of Svevo) and Umberto Beniamino Steindler, the ship captain who, during the 1930s, brought 150,000 Jews to safety in Haifa.
