Michel Kichka: Second Generation: A Graphic Novel on Fathers and Sons after the Holocaust
Graphic novelist and cartoonist Michel Kichka presents his work Deuxième Génération, a work that portrays his father Henri Kichka as Holocaust survivor and witness, and the author’s own experience as a second generation child in Belgium. Like Art Spiegelman in Maus, Kichka uses the graphic novel medium to present the story of a father and son in a way which is both unique and universal.
The talk will be held in English.
This event is generously sponsored by Wallonie-Bruxelles International. Booking here.
The interdisciplinary ‘Dissent and Displacement’ Public Seminar Series is presented by the University of Leicester’s School of Arts and Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, in collaboration with Leicester Museums and Galleries in honour of the new exhibition at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, Leicester:
