     By the end of World War II, Schneider's work was all but forgotten. But through the efforts of one man, the German collector Hans-Gerd Röder, who became fascinated by this unknown figure while still in his 20s and began to seek out every work by Schneider he could find, Sascha Shneider's work survived.
