The UMass Amherst Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies presents "Guilt and Punishment: German Civilians, 1946."

 

Stig Dagerman, a twenty-three year old radical Swedish journalist, writes a series of articles from postwar Germany. The articles are later collected in German Autumn – a book that becomes a classic. Lo Dagerman discusses her father and why he wanted to tell this story.

 

Lo Dagerman is the daughter of Stig Dagerman and actress Anita Björk.  Lo has lived in the United States for more than thirty years. She holds Master Degrees from MIT and JHU, and has most recently worked as a school counselor in the Washington D.C. area, where she lives with her husband Brian Levy. Lo is a driving force in the effort to introduce Stig Dagerman’s writing in the United States.

 

This event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow.
