Lunchtime Exhibition Talk: Translating Holocaust Letters with Jenifer Ball

Monday 5th June 2023


This event is organised as part of the Holocaust Letters exhibition events series.

In this hands-on lunchtime talk, Jenifer Ball will demonstrate how she translated a German letter on display in the exhibition. She will discuss how she approaches linguistic and cultural questions in personal papers and researches references to contemporary social life to create richly contextualised texts.


Jenifer Ball was a teacher of German and French, and translates from both languages. Her work has ranged from Baroque music to veterinary medicine, and she particularly enjoys translating verse.
