Line 41 Zoom Discussion

Line 41 documents a Holocaust and Lodz Ghetto survivor’s return back to today’s Lodz (Poland). Until now, Grossmann had repressed his desire to learn about the fate of his brother he lost contact with in 1942. 70 years later, Grossmann starts a search for his missing brother. His search crosses paths with Jens-Jürgen Ventzki, son of the former Nazi Head Mayor of Lodz. Ventzki is pursuing his family’s dark secret. In tracing their family histories, they inevitably confront each other.

In the Monument Zoom Discussion

In the Monument examines the evolution of Holocaust inspired monument building in the last 70 years. With the help of world famous artists, scholars, architects we get to explore how monuments are made to endure and continue to resonate. Monuments, just like other pieces of public art, need to evolve and be ready for change. Presenting the last stage of the design competition for the Canadian Holocaust Monument and six shortlisted proposals, we get behind the scenes of what it’s like to represent the Holocaust with art and design.
