Joyful memories of friends, family and loved ones who have taken their lives by suicide can simultaneously coexist with the painful memories of those relationships, and yet opportunities to talk about those pleasant memories and our process of grief are few.

What we know is that suicide has touched many of our lives, either through our own experience of attempted suicide or the loss of someone we knew, perhaps even loved, to suicide. Therefore, an opportunity to gather together with others who have lost someone to suicide and understand the myriad of emotions that occur after such an event has been planned – to celebrate joyful memories.

Join members of the Ithaca College community Wednesday evening at 7pm in Klingenstein Lounge for A Time to Remember: Stories of Remembrance. Those attending the program are encouraged to come prepared to share their own Story of Remembrance in story, poetry, picture, song or some other style.

"Memory, History, Testimony: The Argentine Case"

Nora Strejilevich, author, scholar, and survivor of the Argentine Dirty War (1976-83), was a young woman when her brother and other family members and friends disappeared at the hands of the military junta.

Part of a systematic campaign to eliminate left-wing ‘terrorism,’ the violence perpetrated by the junta far exceeded anything the leftists ever dreamed of, enveloping not only members of the left but other dissidents and innocent civilians as well, and particularly targeting the Jewish population.

A desaparecida herself, Strejilevich survived kidnapping and torture to speak of her experience with a dignified voice and a clear-eyed realism that extends from one end of the political spectrum to the other.
