|88.5 CBC Radio One Presents Sunday-@-the Segal with Yehudi Lindeman
CBC Radio One
A series of intimate conversation and riveting lectures at
The Leanor and Alvin Segal Theatre
with Yehudi Lindeman
Kicking off this season of first class theatre at The Segal is one of the most
important works of the 20th Century - The Diary of Anne Frank.
Don't miss the return of the always-interesting Sunday-@-the-Segal
for this upcoming production as we welcome professor Yehudi Lindeman.
Yehudi Lindeman is Professor Emeritus of English at McGill University and the
founder and past Director of Living Testimonies, the Holocaust Video Archive
at McGill, which is a centre for Holocaust research and documentation. A child
survivor of the Holocaust, he was separated from his family in 1942 when he
was four years old. For the next three years, members of the Dutch resistance
moved him through fifteen different safe houses in Nazi-occupied Holland. He
started the organization Child Survivors in Montreal and is a founding member
of the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust. Mr. Lindeman
has published widely on Renaissance poetry and translation, and on resistance
and rescue during the Shoah. His most recent book is Shards of Memory:
Narratives of Holocaust Survival (2007).
“The only sense of stability I felt was when yet another stranger, some
young man or woman, (a courier working for the resistance, no doubt), would
take me once again to a new place of hiding, usually on the back of a bicycle.
I recall feeling very safe during those many nocturnal rides, sitting close
to the person in front of me, the sound of the bicycle’s tires steady
and reassuring in the night. I think they gave me the only sense of faith that
I ever had during those years.”
