LEGACY & RESPONSIBILITY Rachel Kadish in Conversation with Julie Lindahl with Rachel Kadish/Julie Lindah
Julie Lindahl is a multi-national author, activist and educator living in Sweden. Her 2018 memoir, The Pendulum; A Granddaughter’s Search for Her Family’s Forbidden Nazi Past (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018, paperback 2022) reveals her 6-year journey through Europe and Latin America to discover the role her grandparents played in the Third Reich – her grandfather had been a fanatic member of the SS since 1934 and was responsible for enslavement and torture and was complicit in the murder of the local population on the large estates he oversaw in occupied Poland. The pendulum used by Julie’s grandmother to divine good from bad and true from false becomes a symbol for the elusiveness of truth and morality, but also for the false securities we cling to when we become unmoored. Together with other critically acclaimed authors from the Boston area, Rachel and Julie curate a podcast series for exploring how we co-create a world that’s more considerate, more resilient, and stronger in the face of today’s challenges.
