A Story of Rose’s: Creating a Personal Narrative to Remember and Investigate
Presented by Larry Volk

A Story of Rose’s is a biographical narrative about Rosette Alcabes Volk, Larry’s mother and a Holocaust survivor, whose journey brought her from Cuba to France, and later to the United States and Cleveland, Ohio. It is a son’s creative effort to know his mother through significant events that shaped and changed Rose’s identity. It is an act of remembrance but also investigation. Through a presentation of his work exploring his mother’s history, Larry will discuss the process of using the photographs and materials that are handed through generations to preserve family history.
