Event description

Description

Presented by the UC San Diego Holocaust Living History Workshop

Sponsored by Daniel and Phyllis Epstein

Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program and UC San Diego Library for a lecture by Gabriella Y. Karin on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 from 4:30-7 p.m. in the Seuss Room at Geisel Library. This event is free and open to the public.

As a child, Gabriella Karin was separated from her parents and placed in a Slovakian convent for three years. Although physically safe, she did not emerge unscathed. Suppressed memories of her past came flooding back once she began to fashion sculptures related to the Holocaust later in life. Her journey offers important insight into trauma and how creativity can be used as a tool to process memories of oppression, persecution, and loss. Karin is a docent at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust and participates in the Righteous Conversations Project which unites survivors and students through art.

This event is preceded by a talk by Rose Schindler, a Czechoslovakian Jew who was deported to Auschwitz at age 14. Her story is told in the recently published Two Who Survived: Keeping Hope Alive While Surviving the Holocaust.
