Follow a Dutch youth’s 200km journey into hiding from Amsterdam’s Hongerwinter, eventually his life saved by Canadian soldiers on his sixteenth birthday on April 13, 1945.
71 years later, his sixteen year-old granddaughter revisits her Opa’s wartime route with the help of stories, archival images, social media, and live video streaming.

Join a public presentation exploring this media arts project (currently in development) which brings to life memory and archives for a new generation considering WWII, refugee and conflict issues. Today’s conversation will give voice to Elder’s carrying these memories, and consider digital strategies to bring archives and hidden stories to life for a new generation.

Irwin Oostindie is a Vancouver-based Dutch media artist researching occupation, settler and migration issues.

Sponsored by DUDOC and Consul General of the Netherlands.
