Sanctuary and Exile: Sara’s Last Steps
Calgarth Estate, Troutbeck Bridge, Windermere
A slow participatory walk in the Lake District exploring layers of erasure, separation and reunion. The walk hosted by artists Richard White and Lorna Brunstein traverses the site of a WW2 workers housing estate near Windermere. In 1945 part of the site was requisitioned for a group of Jewish child Holocaust refugees, ‘the Windermere Children’. The walk traces the final steps of a Jewish mother parted from her children at the Auschwitz selection point, transposed to the former Calgarth Estate. Sara’s Last Steps forms part of a cycle of work, Sanctuary and Exile, commissioned by the Lake District Holocaust Project.
Registration in advance for the walk is essential. Limited places, maximum 25
