I wrote – Bahira Fouda:
Menna Allah Al Jawahirji, daughter of the late artist Shweikar, revealed the story of rain spoiling most of the archives of her late artist mother.
In a telephone conversation with the media, Yusef al-Husseini, on the program “The Ninth”, which was broadcast on the Egyptian Channel One, Mennat Allah said that her mother used to put her pictures on the “balcony”, and when the rain fell, all the pictures were long, saying: “Unfortunately, I did not know where the pictures are, and the rain The whole world is fine. All the pictures are still, unfortunately, and nothing can be fixed. “
She added, “The rain spoiled all of her rare photos that she kept behind the scenes of her work with all the artists.”
She continued: “The damage was not caused to the Shwikar Prizes and their plays and films, which are kept in a library inside the house, but the damage to the pictures is unfortunately irreparable.”
The artist Shweikar died on August 14, 2020, and was buried in the family cemetery in 6th of October City.
