January 22 at the Legacy Art Gallery in downtown Victoria
Doors open at 7:00pm
This is a free event and open to the public.
This presentation is part of The City Talks, a distinguished lecture series hosted by the University of Victoria. It is the first of four public events this spring on the theme of Racism, Memory, and Politics in the European City.
This talk, by Barbara Kintaert, Documentarian and Community Activist, describes her grassroots project, Servitengasse 1938, in which a small group of activists in Vienna sought to research and remember the former residents of their own apartments, Jews displaced by the Nazi regime. The talk will draw this history to light and explore how residents of Vienna today are grappling with the past.
