Arendt was imprisoned in the Gurs camp in the 'artists' barracks' together with musicians, actors and artists who were known as the "Nathan Group". The box was made for him by Baruch Rosenheck, a fellow prisoner. Edgar and his family survived. Baruch Rosenheck was deported to Auschwitz and murdered.
