Aura of Margot Rummelsburg is a great aunt of Degard’s who was murdered in Auschwitz in 1943. In 2023, Degard discovered she had 33 ancestors who had all been taken into concentration camps all over Europe and murdered. Margot was known as Minna so auntie Minna looks to be a wonderful warm person. Degard through visionary processes has, in a short book analysed who Margot would have been as a person thereby bringing her back to life. The portrait of Margot is a spirit portrait entirely created through the visionary method of channelling to create automatic painting.
