River Danube as a Holocaust Landscape: The Journey of the Kladovo Transport

In our first PhD and a Cup of Tea 2018 Series, Vesna Lukic will explore the role of audio-visual media in Holocaust representation.

The film Two Emperors and a Queen (2015) by Vesna Lukic traces the journey of the 'Kladovo transport': a large group of about 1200 Jewish refugees from central Europe whose illegal attempt to flee Nazi persecution in 1939 via the river Danube, fatally ended in Serbia in 1941/42. The film shows the boat on which the Jewish emigrants lived during their journey which today is a shipwreck on the Danube shore in Kladovo.

Vesna Lukic is a visual artist and PhD candidate at the University of Bristol. She is working on a practice-as-research doctoral project on the Kladovo transport. This is an interdisciplinary study that explores the role of audio-visual media in probing ideas on place, space, movement and temporality in relation to Holocaust representation.
