How are early memories formed? What happens when the social fabric of childhood memory is ripped apart? In this interactive workshop, Dr Rebecca Clifford, an expert on the post-war lives of child Holocaust survivors, reveals stories of child survivors who had to become 'historian of themselves'. Participants will also have an opportunity to reflect upon their own early memories.
