Celebrating the release of Meriel Schindler‘s debut memoir ‘The Lost Café Schindler: One family, two wars and the search for truth’, we are thrilled to share a virtual discussion of the book, filmed at the ACF London.
Along with the author herself, British writer and director Jim Ring hosts the evening and includes a special appearance from historian Niko Hofinger. The event is accompanied musically by Zac Taylor Schindler on the saxophone and John Haslam on the piano.
Meriel Schindler tells a story through the prism of the famous Innsbruck Café Schindler, weaving together memoir, family history and the untold story of Austria-Hungary’s Jewish population. It explores the restorative power of writing, and offers readers a profound reflection on memory, truth, trauma and the importance of cake.
The video will be available to watch on our homepage online, from 23 June onwards.
