We were honored to be received by Clila and Hadasa Bau, along with some of their close friends for an intimate Birthday Celebration and Tour of the Museum. This is one of the 'hidden pearls' of Tel Aviv. It is rich in History, and connects the Second World War with Israel, rightly so!! Joseph Bau, gifted as an artist, musician,... More

Being born in Tel Aviv I should have known the artist Yoseph Bau. But I did not know him, as an artist. I knew his name and I rarely met him in our office. He was a timid person who was known just to the "elders" of the office. Operators / handlers of resorces never met the people who enabled... More

We contacted Hadasa and Clila, daughters of Joseph Bau, the next day and arranged a visit to the museum during our trip. Hadasa met us there and we spent the next few hours enjoying the art while listening... More

In this studio and workplace, the animator/humorist/illustrator/author's daughter provides you with a glimpse of an amazing character and his story-- unknown by most, because of his secret 'other life' as an agent in the Mossad (Israel's secret service). Highly recommended.

My family (with our 4 kids ages 11,10 and twins 6) spent at least 3 hours in the company of Clila Bau, one of Joseph's daughters. She shared her parents moving and very interesting story, we watched a few of the animated films her father had created, we asked her many questions and just had a wonderful afternoon with her....
