The lost journal of art therapist Marie Paneth

Online Talk

Trevor Avery, director of The Lake District Holocaust Project will give a talk about the first book to be published under the Second Generation imprint, Rock the Cradle by Austrian-born art therapist Marie Paneth.

Rock the Cradle is a rare eye witness account – written in 1947, but only recently re-discovered – of what life was like both at the Calgarth Estate near Windermere, home to some three hundred Holocaust survivor children, and for a small group of young women Holocaust survivors who lived in a hostel in London after the war. Helping to rebuild their shattered lives through art, Paneth writes movingly about the daily challenges she faced every day to try and help them come to terms with the terrible atrocities they had endured.

Trevor will be joined by Henry Hochland, co-founder of Second Generation Publishing, and the session will be chaired by Monica Bohm-Duchen, initiator and director of Insiders/Outsiders.

This event is held in partnership with the Association of Jewish Refugees.
