Das Weiterleben der Ruth Klüger: Landscapes of Memory: The Life of Ruth Klüger

Directed by Renata Schmidtkunz
October 23, 2021, 7:00 p.m. PDT via Zoom •  RSVP by October 15

We are offering this screening in commemoration of Ruth Klüger, who would have turned 90 on October 30, 2021.

“It is one thing to survive the Holocaust, but quite another to deal with the lasting impact of this experience.

This filmic portrait of Ruth Klüger, an American literary scholar from Vienna, dealt with these issues by revisiting four significant places in her life: Vienna, California, Göttingen, and Israel. Ruth Klüger also shares her thoughts on very personal topics: her childhood in anti-Jewish Vienna, her life in the United States, her motherhood of two sons, and the culture of commemoration.” (ImDb, autlookfilms)

Klüger’s autobiography Still Alive: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered is an international bestseller and the book‘s publication in 12 languages has garnered multiple awards.

Director Renata Schmidtkunz | 2013 Germany | German with English subtitles | 85 min.
(The trailer is in German. You can change the YouTube setting to show English subtitles.)
