Unheard Echoes; The Far Reach of the Holocaust in Asia

January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Ryan Sun is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at UBC working with Prof. Leo Shin and Prof. Richard Menkis. His transnational project expands the geography of Jewish exile outside Europe and onto the British colonies of Hong Kong and Singapore. He is particularly interested in Jewish refugees’ ship-bound experiences, especially how transiting colonial port-cities and encountering local inhabitants informed their understanding of ‘the Orient’, as well as how these ship-moments disrupt the standard narratives of the Holocaust and survivor testimonies.
