Discussion | Drawing It Out: Graphic Novels, Teenagers, and the Holocaust (online)


Graphic novels have long been emerging as a way to tell difficult and often traumatic stories. Since the late 1970s, they have also been a medium for telling stories about the Holocaust. From true stories to fictional ones, graphic novels are used to tell all kinds of stories about this time. Recently, authors and illustrators have been turning to stories about teenagers during the Holocaust. This is a program exploring the depiction of teenagers in Holocaust graphic novels. The program will consist of a conversation between David Polonsky, illustrator of Anne Frank's Diary: The Graphic Adaptation; Ken Krimstein, author of When I Grow Up: The Lost Autobiographies of Six Yiddish Teens; and R.J. Palacio, author of White Bird: A Wonder Story. The conversation will be moderated by AJ Frost.

Tour | Cambodia: Banteay Kdei Temple and The Bathing Pool for The King (online, livestream)


Learn about Banteay Kdei, a massive Buddhist monastery from the latter part of the 12th century, surrounded by four concentric walls. Each of its four entrances is decorated with garudas, which hold aloft one of Jayavarman VII's (king of the Khmer Empire) favourite themes: the four faces of Avalokiteshvara. The inside of the central tower was never finished and much of the temple is in a ruinous state due to hasty construction. East of Banteay Kdei is a vast pool of water, Sra Srang reserved as a bathing pool for the king and his consorts. A tiny island in the middle of Sra Srang once bore a wooden temple, of which only the stone base remains.
