'Testimonies/Temoignages' - Documenting the Stories of Refugee Children Rescued into Switzerland Du

This lunchtime talk will discuss Samantha's research concerning what happened to Jewish children who were refugees in Switzerland.


This lunchtime talk will discuss Samantha's research concerning what happened to Jewish children, specifically adolescents, who were refugees in Switzerland during World War II. The “sejour en Suisse” for many refugees is not well documented, and the last survivors of the Holocaust are becoming older and harder to speak with.

Through in-person interviews with the child survivors themselves in addition to archival work, Samantha will share her research findings and discuss the specifics of the refugee story. Photographs of the people and places important to this story, taken by professional photographer and former Fulbright scholar Laura Bernier, will also be shown.

The talk will also offer a last opportunity to view our temporary exhibition ‘The Space Between’ documenting the experience of present-day refugee women academics.
