About the event

Maurice Blik & York Membery

The eminent Dutch-born sculptor and Holocaust survivor Maurice Blik talks to journalist and Maastricht University alumnus York Membery about being interned in the notorious WWII concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen. Born into a Jewish family in Amsterdam in 1939, both his grandmother and his baby sister died at Belsen, while his father was murdered at Auschwitz. They were among the more than 100,000 Dutch Jews to perish in the Holocaust. Blik, a past president of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, is the author of The Art of Survival.

York Membery is a regular contributor to BBC History Magazine, the Daily Mail and the Sunday Times in the UK. He took a History PhD at Maastricht University.

With music of the Cassiopeia Collective, a group of women classical musicians focuses on exploring different group formations to enjoy the creative process and the research involved. In this concert, Isabel Rico (flute and piano) and Irina  Loskova (soprano) are bringing back the memories of those days with songs from Duparc, Richepin, etc
