Talking Memory: Checkmate: Making, Playing and Picturing Chess in the Holocaust
May 15 , 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Classrooms Without Borders presents Checkmate: Making, Playing and Picturing Chess in the Holocaust with guest speaker Rachel Perry. Chess was played, made and pictured during the Holocaust by individuals in extremis. When escape routes were closed off and the endgame seemed near, chess allowed artists to symbolize their feelings of agency and entrapment, as both players and pawns. 2 p.m. classroomswithoutborders.org/talking-memory-checkmate-making-playing-picturing-chess-holocaust
