Jews boarding a deportation train at Westerbork transit camp in the Netherlands.
Think Only of Today traces the life of Max Garcia from his childhood in Amsterdam, through the Holocaust, and finally to his immigration and life in the United States. Born in 1924, Max was interned in Westerbork before being deported to Auschwitz and later Mauthausen. The documentary, which follows Max’s ordeal through war and incarceration, also explores the effect of the Holocaust on succeeding generations. Interviews with Max’s children and grandchildren reveal the different ways individuals from each generation have grappled with the burden of such a searing experience.
This event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 in Geisel Library’s Seuss Room from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information about UC San Diego’s Holocaust Living History Workshop, contact Susanne Hillman at HLHW@ucsd.edu or 858-534-7661.

“Buzz” over to the Seuss Room at 7:30 p.m. on January 28 for a signature study break: National Kazoo Day. You’ll be surprised to find that this common, often labeled “annoying,” party favor carries a rich history, dating back hundreds of years when it was first used to mask voices in African ceremonial rituals. Its popularity in America started in the late 1800’s and it has since made its way into mainstream music (think Pink Floyd’s Corporal Clegg).
At the event, hear new chamber works for Kazoo composed by UC San Diego alums and learn more about the history of this legitimate musical instrument. You’ll even walk away with a FREE kazoo!

These are some flat style job aids we’ve made for the Price Center’s One Button Studio, and another for out Makerbot 3D printer. We’re looking to apply the same simple styles to infographics and data visualizations.
Here’s a stop motion video animating books in the Library. The actual photo shoot took a couple of hours, but editing took days. It was a valuable lesson in project planning.
