Shoshana Presitz (1892-1969), born in Kiev, Ukraine, studied in Moscow and the Sorbonne in Paris. In 1917, she established a quality publishing book for childrens books called "Art".
She immigrated to Israel in 1925, joined the "General Zionists", was a member of the Tel Aviv City Council and later a member of the First, Second and Third Knesset. The British Mandate authorities took over the "Art House" and set up an army warehouse there.
