Curator Talk with Dr. Astrid Ley
Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019 – Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019
06:30 PM – 08:00 PM
Dr. Astrid Ley, deputy director of Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum, will discuss the exhibit, In the Country of Numbers, where the men have no names. It is through interviews with family members of the second and third generation of those who survived the Pogrom Night of November 1938 that the idea of this exhibition was conceived. Upon visiting the Sachsenhausen Memorial, families were asked how their own lives had been affected by the events of 1938, their memories of parents or grandparents and what they had been told about the arrests, imprisonment, violence, flight and exile.
