Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Mad Meg painting

As part of the University of Waterloo's 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, Mad Meg creates a space in which community members can reflect upon their connection to domestic violence, which is often silenced due to shame, grief, and fear. The installation is not intended for disclosures, rather it's a space to witness the lives (in solidarity and as a community) of those who were or are involved in this ubiquitous battle.

Join the Waterloo Centre for German Studies as Professor James Diamond, Chair of Jewish Studies at the University of Waterloo, gives his talk, The Buried Raging Sermons of the Warsaw Ghetto Rabbi. During World War II, a group of poets, artists, and historians in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents attesting to their suffering and resistance as Jews under Nazi rule. Among those recovered was a manuscript of weekly sermons delivered in the Ghetto by a Hasidic rabbi desperately trying to preserve his faith in the face of unimaginable loss and pain. It is a rare testament to one human being’s struggle with the incomprehensible evil of the Holocaust.
