Through Objects Our Memories Live On
Through Objects Our Memories Live OnA Story of SurvivalDina Rajs, Jovan Rajs
Dina and Jovan Rajs were born in the former Yugoslavia and their childhood was marked by the Holocaust. Dina hid using forged identity papers and was in constant fear of being discovered. Jovan hid too, but was also imprisoned in several concentration camps.
In this book the authors tell their story through the objects they have carried with them throughout their lives. Things that at first glance may seem trivial but which together testify to a life as survivors: a piece of paper, a family photo, an engagement ring, a chess set. Objects that were hidden when they were forced to leave their home, but which have influenced their way of thinking and feeling, reminded them of their story and, ultimately, shaped their entire lives.
