Driving to Treblinka

Saturday 13th October 2018

Join 2018 Ockham Award winner Diana Wichtel in conversation with Elizabeth Knox about her long search to find out what happened to her father.

Canadian-born Wichtel’s search for her father, who had miraculously survived the Holocaust, became an obsession as she painstakingly uncovered information about his past. Her story is a deep reflection on the meaning of family, the trauma of loss, and the insistence of memory. Is it better to know, or more bearable not to?
