At the centre of historical events there are always personal stories. In her book, In the Maëlstrom of History. A conversation with Miriam (Arpa D’Or) Rosanna Turcinovich Giuricin finds the threads that link personal lives to History and creates a choral narrative that explores the experience of the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the lives of people who live along changing national borders. The author will take part in the book discussion together with Prof. Konrad Eisenbichler (University of Alberta) and Dr. Diego Bastianutti (Queen’s University). Dr. Arianna Dagnino (The University of British Columbia) will moderate the event. In collaboration with the Club Giuliano Dalmato di Toronto.

About the author & the book:

Giuricin’s archival research on the Jewish community in Trieste in the 1930s, on Italian soldiers imprisoned in German camps, and on other survivors of Nazi concentration camps is presented in a single narrative that brings together many voices and many experiences. At the centre of the narrative there are a young Jewish woman, Miriam Grünglas Frankel, and a city, Trieste.
