Back from their recent trips to Berlin, Ilana Segal and Tamar Benzikry will take you on an interactive tour of the city’s many and varied sites of Jewish memory, ranging from the monumental "Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe"—an undulating grid of concrete slabs encompassing five-acres in central Berlin—to the ghost-filled halls of the Jüdische Mädchenschule, a former Jewish girls school that is now home to trendy art galleries and restaurants. Using video, image, text, and graphic novel, they will engage you in an exploration of the creation, reception, aesthetics, and after-lives of these public spaces, comparing them to sites of Holocaust remembrance in the United States and internationally.
