Geisel Library, Seuss Room

On Thursday, November 8, the HLHW series will feature Lodewyk “Lou” de Beer.

Lou de Beer

“I live in crazy times,” Anne Frank wrote in her attic on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Lou might have echoed that sentiment, though his life was not in immediate danger. The son of American parents, Lou was born in Amsterdam. As a boy, he witnessed the arrival of the German troops in 1940 and lived through 18 months of occupation. When the US joined the war against Germany, the de Beers were declared enemy aliens and subjected to a lengthy odyssey through concentration and internment camps in Holland, France and Germany.

On the periphery of the war and the Holocaust, Lou caught glimpses of devastation and oppression without fully grasping their significance, though he would experience the hardship of war firsthand during his service in Korea in the 1950s. His experience adds an important and generally overlooked angle to the history of the Second World War in Europe.

For more information about UC San Diego’s Holocaust Living History Workshop, contact Susanne Hillman at (858) 534-7661. To register for the event by phone, contact Ellysa Lim at (858) 534-1183. Please note: If you’re unable to reserve a seat before the event sells out, walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis if seats become available.

Singing Our Way to Freedom Film Screening & Discussion
Wednesday, October 24 •  5:15-7:45 p.m.
Atkinson Hall Auditorium 
Register for the event

The Institute of Arts & Humanities (IAH) at UC San Diego invites you to a special documentary film screening and discussion. The film Singing Our Way to Freedom highlights the powerful story of Ramon “Chunky” Sanchez and the inspiring music of the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in San Diego. The screening is sponsored by the UC San Diego Library and the UC San Diego Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

Singing Our Way to Freedom is a multilayered look at the life of Chicano musician, composer and community activist, Ramon “Chunky” Sanchez. Borrowing from musical traditions on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, Chunky uses music and humor as powerful weapons in fighting for social justice. From his humble beginnings as a farmworker in rural California to the dramatic moment when he received one of his nation’s highest musical honors at the Library of Congress, this character-driven narrative reminds us that the battle for freedom has to be fought anew by every generation.

Following the event will be a special panel featuring filmmaker Paul Espinosa, Ph.D. along with guests Estevan Azcona and Michelle Tellez, concluding with an audience Q&A session. The event is free and open to the public. Reserve a seat.

The UC San Diego Library is honored to be home to Espinosa’s archive. The rich materials document Espinosa’s more than 35 years of filmmaking, including interviews, photos, and correspondence, as well as films scripts, DVD’s, and video. The Library’s collections have particular strengths on California and Baja California history, as well as on Chicano culture and activism.
