In lieu of a speaker, there will will a one-hour documentary film shown, Exile and Community: The Life of Carola Domar, sponsored by the CCHRC.
Filmmaker Susan Reider explains: “Although this oral history is told by an elderly woman and her grown daughter, the account is largely communicated? from a young person’s perspective—Carola escaped Germany as a teen and came to the United States on her own. A chapter of the piece is devoted to the sense of community and purpose she finds in her neighborhood of Conantum in Concord.”
Her story of exile and community has particular relevance in the context of current mass migration.
