Andre Kertesz was kicked out of two countries.

Hungary and France. In Hungary, it was the anti-Semitic communists he fled.
In France, it was the anti-Semitic Nazis.

He came to America but never felt at home here.

This is his self-portrait. It's called "Lost Cloud."

Despite everything, he lived to be 101.

Something to think about when you've had a lousy day.
