Lillian is a poet, author, and child survivor of the Holocaust whose story has been at the core of numerous works of poetry, youth novels, and a memoir as well as video testimonies, presentations to students, and Holocaust education events. Her willingness to offer audiences insight into her difficult past is an act of vulnerability that is courageous and admirable. As with her other works, Lillian approached this project with openness, intuitiveness, and vivacity that is as inspiring as it is instrumental in understanding a child survivor's struggle with identity, memory, and relationships.
Sarah is a fourth-year undergraduate student at the University of Victoria focusing on a degree in Germanic Studies. As an avid fan of poetry, Sarah encountered Lillian's poems in a previous semester and from that point, Lillian's experiences continued to be at the centre of other assignments, culminating in the presentation of this exhibit. Outside of her studies, Sarah is an artist that focuses primarily on ink drawings and oil paintings, some of which can be seen here.
