The WISER Podcast | Season 2 | Episode 2 by Terry Kurgan

Thursday, 3 September, 2020 (All day)

In Episode 2 of Season 2 of The WISER PodcastTerry Kurgan discusses two photographs, each found in her father’s possession, and both taken on the edge of graves, one in Ein al-Beida, Palestine and the other in a forest just outside the town of Panevėžys in Lithuania. She considers the two photographs as entry points to a new book she has just begun that will traverse perhaps the darkest period of mid-twentieth century European and Middle Eastern History.

The WISER Podcast is also available on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
