An Evening with Tamar March

An Offering of the Art & Soul program of the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life


Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 7:00pm
Location: Houghton Chapel Multi Faith Reception Area, Houghton Chapel Multi Faith Room

TamarMarchwas born inCzechoslovakia in l938, on the cusp of the beginning of the

darkest age in modernhistory. Her birth must have been a catastrophe ? albeit not a

surprise - to the young parents, as they considered their choices: to stay and

help their own parentscope with the hell into which all were descending, or leave to

save their new-borndaughter.Tamar's grandparents were adamant: leave while you can

to save the nextgeneration. Reluctantly, they left, but got no further than Budapest. All

roads were now closed: they could neither leave central Europe, nor return to their

parents. They could onlystay in place and use all their strength, wits, and guile to live

one more day. How thosedays and nights unfolded for seven long, long years isTamar's

project. She wants torecord this bit of personal history so that her grandchildren cantell

it to theirs. And tonight,she will tell parts of it to you.
