The Legacy of the Low-Beer Family in the Czech Republic

May 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

A talk via Zoom by Daniel Low-Beer, a grandson whose surviving relatives never returned to their homeland.

“The white light of the Tugendhat Villa, built by the German architect Mies Van Der Rohe, with Czech artisans, for a Jewish family, shines on the hill above Brno. The open, glass home is the opposite of the closed ghetto. Like the crest of a wave, it is the highlight of European culture that came crashing down. The Löw-Beer factory and concentration camp shine a darker light. The Arks is the journey of survival and freedom. It tells the untold stories behind two key heritage sites in the Czech Republic. The story shows how quickly discrimination can break Europe apart and asks how we would respond now”.
