What does it mean to seek refuge? How does it feel to be welcomed or denied entry into a new country? What does it mean to leave your home to seek safety far away? In the exhibition Braided Memories, Chilean Jewish poet, writer and human rights activist Dr. Marjorie Agosín explores these questions through the story of her great grandmother, Helena Broder, who fled her home in Vienna for safety in Chile in the wake of Kristallnacht. Join Dr. Agosín for a conversation about the experiences of Jewish refugees in Chile and the power of art. This event will
include a poetry reading and artist talk.
