Helen Lewis – The Dead Still Cry Out

Helen will be speaking about her father, Mike Lewis, who was a British paratrooper and combat cameraman who filmed the liberation of Bergen-Belsen. In her prize-winning book The Dead Still Cry Out, Helen uses photographs and film stills to reconstruct Mike's early life and experience of the war, while exploring broader questions: what it means to belong, how history and memory are shaped, and how anyone can deny the Holocaust in the face of such powerful evidence.

Helen's memoir of her father's experience of war, and the legacy he and fellow cameramen left history, won the Mark and Evette Moran Nib Literary Award for 2018, presented for excellence in research in the creation of a literary work. After the talk, copies of the book will be available for purchase (cash only) and signing by the author.
