Museum Hosts Talk on Living With The Enemy
The Clare Champion, Friday, November 30, 2012
On Thursday, 29th November, Clare Museum will be the venue for an illustrated lecture by Rosemary Power titled Living with the enemy – Japan’s Burma railway and the human aftermath.
This is the final of three public talks taking place at the museum during November in conjunction with an exhibition titled ‘Remembering the Stories’. This exhibition recounts the human experiences contained in family histories of Clare residents during wartime, particularly the First and Second World Wars.
Rosemary is a historian, folklorist,
and a minister in Clare and will be drawing on accounts she heard in her youth
from survivors of the Far East prisoner of war camps.
It will focus on the aftermath of the experiences, the mental and physical reactions in the years after the War, survivor guilt, effects on the next generation, and the issues raised of commemoration, confrontation, justice and forgiveness.
