    Zum Inhalt

    This creative arts project is a shared collaboration between David Hanauer and Dafna Rehavia at the Welz-Haus and the University of Würzburg in Germany. In this dual residency, David a poetic autoethnographer and Dafna a multimedia visual artist who are life partners, explore using art, poetry and performance a traumatic family legacy with the Holocaust.

    The choice of Würzburg for this residency was not arbitrary as the city is the birth place of David’s father and the site of the Holocaust related events for the family. Central among these events are the experiences of the brutal parting of parents and child and forced deportation to a concentration camp.

    In a previous visit to the city, David and Dafna participated in a memorial art project for David’s grandparents termed the Stolper Steiner (Stepping Stones) involving the placement of memorial stones with the names of deported and murdered Jewish residents of Würzburg in front of the apartments that they once lived in.

    The current dual residency aims to explore ways of both recognizing and memorializing the traumatic events of the past, exploring their relevance to the present and finding ways of healing and continuing to live beyond the horror of these events.
