Dr. Toll was born in Lvov, Poland. As a young child, Dr. Toll was sent to live with a sympathetic Polish family. While hiding, Dr. Toll painted 64 watercolors of family, friends, and children. Her vivid illustrations combine fairy tale figures with pre-war memories and depict a fantasy world, freedom, and child’s play. Dr. Toll’s memoir, Behind the Secret Window, won nine awards and has been performed in the Netherlands and throughout the U.S. Her paintings hang at the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
