    Russia, Europe and the Holocaust – History, Human Rights and National Identity: A Camden Conference Community Event with Page Herrlinger (Zoom only)

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Page Herrlinger

    Approximately one million Holocaust victims were murdered on Nazi-occupied Soviet soil, yet Soviet and Russian narratives of the Great Patriotic War have traditionally focused on the collective experience of the Soviet people as “victims of fascism,” in effect covering up the unique suffering of the Jewish people. As a result, many Russians today know very little about the Holocaust. Putin’s participation in recent Holocaust commemoration events indicates a shift in official policy, however. What is the meaning of this change? What do contemporary historical practices and memory politics related to the Russian experience in WWII reveal about the construction of national identity in Russia today? What do they tell us about Russia’s approach towards human rights and other democratic practices, including freedom of speech, information, and research? And what does Russia’s evolving approach to the Holocaust suggest about its current relationship to Europe? In an effort to shed light on these questions, this talk will explore Russia’s record on the Holocaust within the context of Western and Eastern European Holocaust narratives and commemorations.

    Page Herrlinger is Associate Professor of History at Bowdoin College, where she has taught since 1998; her courses include Modern Russia and the Soviet Union, Germany, 1918-1945, and the Holocaust. She received her B.A. at Yale and her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, and her research has been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Philosophical Society. She is currently co-director of an NEH summer seminar for middle and high school teachers, “Teaching the Holocaust through Visual Culture.”

    For a link to the Zoom event to watch from home, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov. This program will be recorded and archived to the library’s YouTube channel and the Camden Conference website after the event.

    POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING Go By Boat: A Maine Author Talk by Dr. Chuck Radis

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Chuck Radis

    PLEASE NOTE, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED, DATE TBD.

    “Doc Martin meets All Creatures Great and Small” sets the tone for this uniquely American true tale about an island physician off the coast of Maine. Fresh out of training, Dr. Chuck Radis convinces his wife, Sandi, to move to Peaks Island to fulfill a Public Health scholarship obligation. Absent-minded and initially oblivious to island mores, Dr. Radis slowly adapts to a medical practice where x-rays and advanced laboratory testing are available only on the mainland. When he travels to the outer islands of Casco Bay for house calls, he relies on his physical examination skills and a Bass-Master tackle box filled with emergency medications to successfully manage his patients. Go by Boat is a respite from contemporary living, immersing the reader in the distinct cultures of four Maine Island communities, Peaks, Chebeague, Long, and Cliff Islands. In this event, Dr. Radis will share stories about the book and his experiences as an island physician.

    After graduating from Bates College in 1976 with a degree in biology, Dr. Radis committed to a career in osteopathic medicine after meeting a D.O. family practice bush pilot in Baja, Mexico. After completing his internal medicine residency, the young doctor moved his family to Peaks Island off the coast of Maine and provided primary care to four year-round islands in Casco Bay. In addition to his clinic duties on Peaks and Chebeague Islands, he traveled year-round by boat to the outer islands and logged more than 100 yearly house calls. For more than three decades, he has lived on Peaks Island with his wife, Sandi Korpela Radis, commuting year-round on his boat to the mainland. His public health work continues on the island, where he assisted in the design of a new health center, lobbied for senior housing, and is active in developing an assisted living facility. He has been a member of the Peaks Island Health Center Board of Directors for more than 30 years.

    This event will take place in the Community Room, with limited seating. For more information, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov.

    About Trina

    I fell in love with POUND after taking a few classes locally and decided I CAN do this! I was limited in my mobility and strength after kicking breast cancer’s ass and POUND was a way for me to get in shape and easily modified! I love music and dance and this is a great fit for me! I LOVE releasing my inner ROCK STAR!

    Maine’s Black History: A Talk by Bob Greene

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Historian Bob Greene

    Did you know that Maine’s Black history goes back to at least 12 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock? The history of the Pine Tree State includes many Black builders, farmers, fishermen, ship captains, educators, and more whose lives have often been forgotten or ignored. In fact, the first doctor in Maine may have been a Black man, and the nation’s first Black lawyer practiced in Portland after passing the bar. Rockland Public Library will host historian Bob Greene, who will explore and celebrate this often hidden side of Maine’s history.

    Bob Greene is a retired journalist and genealogist who has researched the Black history of his native state for years. A native of Portland, Greene is the eighth generation of his family to be born in Cumberland County. His roots in Maine stretch back into the 1700s. After retiring, he returned home to Maine; his genealogical research has led to his deep knowledge about Maine’s Black history. He contributed to Maine’s Visible Black History, The First Chronicle of its People, co-authored by H.H. Price and Gerald E. Talbot. Greene currently lives in South Portland and is on the Board of Trustees of the Maine Historical Society as well as the Board of Directors of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Southern Maine. He currently teaches a course on Maine’s Black history at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Southern Maine. Greene is also the 2021 recipient of the Maine History Society’s Neal Allen Award, which is presented each year for exceptional contributions to Maine History.

    This event will be held in-person in the Community Room, with limited seating. For more information, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov.
