Arnold Daghani was born in Bukovina, Romania in 1909 into a Jewish family. In the 1920s he travelled to Germany and France and took art lessons in Munich. In 1942 the Daghanis were interned in a concentration camp in the Ukraine. As a direct consequence of being an artist an opportunity to escape presented itself in July 1943, some five months before the inmates of the camp were exterminated. They lived in Israel and several European countries before finally settling in England in 1977.
