754 Schermerhorn Extension

Feb 5 -- Please join us for our first Cultural Memory event of the semester, "In the Shadow of Rescue: The Afterlife of the Kindertransport" with Professor Jack Halberstam in conversation with London-based artist Sara Davidmann. In this project, Sara Davidmann and Jack Halberstam combine their family histories of the Kindertransport through word and image using family photos alongside historical information, letters, testimonies of child refugees and literary accounts like Sebald’s Austerlitz/ Davidmann and Halberstam extend Davidmann’s earlier work on “Ken To Be Destroyed,” a lost history of a transgender life, to think about other histories that remain unwritten and marked for obliteration. Davidmann and Halberstam simultaneously push back on the sentimentality and the triumphalism of conventional Kindertransport stories of rescue and think about what survival means to the child refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe who lived in the long shadow of rescue while many of the parents who pushed them to safety died.
