UCA Senior Lecturer in Illustration and Animation Graphics Slawa Harasymowicz has recently had an event at the site of KZ-Gedenkstätte Neuengamme / Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial. Slawa's art project is based on the fact, that her great-uncle Marian Górkiewicz was a prisoner of the Neuengamme camp for four years. He died tragically in the closing days of #WW2, when prisoners were evacuated from the #Neuengamme concentration camp and lost their lives in the bombardment of ships in the Lübeck Bay. "Radio Warsaw" was first performed at Freud Museum London in 2016. The performance takes the form of a radio broadcast, dramatising and re-imagining real activity that took place in a German concentration camp towards the end of #WWII. During the nights, a group of prisoners would engage in clandestine and prohibited collaboration to create fictitious ‘radio programmes’ using the structure of real broadcasts – including news bulletins, weather forecasts, sports commentary and reportage – as a way of blocking out the surrounding reality of war, incarceration, displacement and the terror of the unknown.
