The River Danube as a Holocaust Landscape: the journey of the ‘Kladovo transport’

Research talk and screening 

Wednesday, November 29, from 3:30-5:00 in the Lecture Room (5.65), Richmond Building. 

In 1939 a large group of Jewish refugees (known in history as the ‘Kladovo transport’) attempted to flee Nazi persecutions via the river Danube. My practice-as-research doctoral project retraces this journey that fatally ended for the majority of passengers in 1941/42. Through filmmaking, I am exploring the potential of cinematic discourse and audio-visual media practice to engage (with) ideas around multiple temporalities inherent in this historical account. I see film as a mode of knowing ideally suited to (re)create the tangible link with the past.

After a brief introduction, Vesna will screen excerpts from her film and invite discussion and conversation around the many issues that it raises. Vesna is a final year PhD student in the Department of Film and Television.
