Faces in the Void: Czech Survivors of the Holocaust
Thursday, 10 January 2013 from 18:30 to 20:00 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Faces in the Void is an original collection of poetry and documentary photography by poet Jane Liddell-King and photographer Marion Davies. It is inspired by a single Torah scroll now on loan to and in use at Beth Shalom Reform Synagogue in Cambridge. Jane and Marion visited Pardubice in the Czech Republic, the scroll’s original home, where they tracked down a handful of survivors of the Holocaust and Communism. Their unique stories intersect with those of other remarkable individuals living in Britain. In the resulting work, poetry and photography complement each other to create a fresh approach to Holocaust remembrance.
At this event co-organised by the Wiener Library and the Czech Centre, Marion and Jane will present their poetry and photography and talk about how their unique project came into being. Refreshments will be served.
