"Memories: Personal and Cultural"
September 6, 2011
How important are memories - to you, your family, your culture? Are some too painful to relive, some too important to forget? What power, what pain, what joy, what meaning do they hold? Students joined photographer Yuri Dojc and filmmaker Katya Krausova for an informal conversation about memories, the ones they have sought to capture and preserve in photographs and film and the ones students hold dear. Their story included an encounter with a Holocaust survivor, a chance discovery, and the determination to preserve the memories of family, a group of people, and a culture. Dojc's photographs were presented in Last Folio, a major exhibition that traveled across the world and stopped in places like New York and Moscow.
