Memory Fragment #1

An exhibition by Jacques Soddell

When my mother died I found an old biscuit tin full of papers and letters with “burn when I die” written in Polish on the lid. It led to an investigation into my parents’ history and a a re-examination of my relationship with them.

This audiovisual reflection on family concentrates on my mother, who was a teenager when Germany and Russia invaded Poland. She became a refugee in France and then Australia. Other major traumas in her life were her divorce from my father who “wanted to write” and became an author, and her 20 year battle with illness.
