Current Highlights

Dr. Helga Wall-Apelt’s Personal Asian Collection was approximately 60 years in the making. She is the daughter of a former prominent German physician and she, together with her father, escaped the Holocaust during World War II. After this traumatic experience, Dr. Wall-Apelt found great solace in the practice of meditation and his involvement in the Asian culture. His admiration, love and passion for the culture and their artistic items transmitted to his daughter, who while in medical school, began collecting Asian items. Dr. Helga Wall-Apelt eventually visited China to expand her knowledge in the art of acupuncture and ancient herbal treatments.
