Date Wed, Apr 13, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Duration   1h

Join the Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College for a special conversation with Polish poet/post-rock musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski who was born into a very particular history. His grandfather was a prisoner in Stutthof, the Nazi concentration camp east of what used to be the Free City of Danzig. Kwiatkowski’s music and poetry explore not only the conflicted past of Eastern Europe but also the paradoxes of contemporary genocides. Kwiatkowski is author of several books of poetry revolving around the subjects of history, remembrance, and ethics. He is a member of a psychedelic rock band Trupa Trupa.

The event is organized by the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center in collaboration with the Department of English and the Creative Writing Club at Queensborough Community College, and is co-sponsored by the Ray Wolpow Institute at Western Washington University and the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights at Rutgers University.
