The Eye As Witness: Exhibition Events
Our latest exhibition The Eye as Witness: Recording the Holocaust, from National Holocaust Centre and Museum and University of Nottingham, examines the photographs taken during the Holocaust and asks the question; through who’s eyes are we seeing the past?
Catch these special one-off events before the exhibition closes on 27th March.
Cancelled – The Little Suitcase: Film Screening and Q&A with Judith Rhodes
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, this event has been cancelled.
To coincide with our exhibition Eye as Witness: Recording the Holocaust, join Judith Rhodes for a screening of her documentary – The Little Suitcase, followed by a Q&A with Charlotte Hall, Curator at The Peace Museum.
Wednesday 18th March, 5.30 – 7.30pm at The Peace Museum.
A story of displacement, strength and loss, The Little Suitcase tells the story of Judith’s mother Ursula Michel, who fled Nazi Germany with just one small suitcase of belongings. Judith will be discussing new research which has come to light surrounding the story of her mother.
Ursula Michel was a refugee who came from Nazi Germany to England in 1939, on one of the last Kindertransports. Telling the story of her mother’s experience, the documentary uses family documents and photos interspersed with archive images and historical narrative.
The film is 18 minutes long, followed by Q&A. There will be a chance to look around the exhibition before and after.
The event is Pay As You Feel, tickets are free to book online and there will be an opportunity to donate on the night.
