Stories of the Holocaust: Local Memory and Transmission

Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 7 pm—Please join us on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 7 pm for the online launch of a newly created digital exhibit featuring ten stories told by local community members whose families were devastated by the Holocaust.

Students in the Holocaust and Memory Studies course offered by the UVic Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies worked one-on-one with community members from Victoria, Vancouver, and Salt Spring Island to prepare these unique stories of the Holocaust for presentation. The exhibit centers not only on the actual stories themselves, but also on notions of relationship building, storytelling and transmission, as well as memory work, inter-generational trauma, and active remembering.
