EXPOZITII
Neighbours who Disappeared
Proiectul ”Vecinii care au disparut”, ofera tinerilor (12- 21 ani) oportunitatea de a-si gasi vecinii care au disparut in timpul celui de al Doilea Razboi Mondial si care atunci fusesera restrictionati, persecutati si in final decimati. Scopul proiectului este de a-i invata pe tineri sa formuleze intrebari legate de viata persoanelor care au disparut si apoi sa caute informatii despre ei in Arhivele Locale si de Stat. In final tinerii realizeaza brosuri si colectii cu poze de familie sau alte documente. Subiectul principal al proiectului vizeaza viata din timpul celui de al Doilea Razboi Mondial.

Tribute to the Child Holocaust Victims
Partea a doua a proiectului se numeste ”Un tribut adus victimelor holocaustului-copiii” si se adreseaza tot tinerilor cu varste cuprinse intre 12 si 21 de ani. Proiectul propune ca ei sa descopere povestile copiilor celor care au disparut.

FILM
Short Long Journey, Rep. Ceha, 2009, 82 min.
regia: Martin Hanzlicek
producator: Fedor Gal, Jarmila Polakova

”Despre oameni, nu doar despre evrei, despre raul din noi, nu doar despre holocaust, despre prezent, nu doar despre trecut.”
In aprilie 1945 Vojtech Gal  fost ucis in drumul sau din Sachsenhusen la Schweri. In aprilie 2008, fiul sau a mers pe urmele sale cu scopul de a-i gasi mormantul si de a lasa o marturie. In calatoria sa a fost insotit de prieteni, regizori de film si de cativa pelerini care chiar daca nu au inteles intotdeauna scopul calatoriei sau nu i-au inteles de fiecare data pe oamenii cu care vorbeau nu s-au gandit nici o clipa la faptul ca aceasta calatorie ar putea fi in zadar sau nu ar avea un scop.

Diamonds of the Night, Cehoslovacia, 1964, 64 min.
regia: Jan Nemec
scenariul: Arnost Lustig

Actiunea din Diamantele Noptii are loc in Cehoslovacia in timpul celui de al Doilea Razboi Mondial. Doi tineri evrei evadeaza dintr-un lagar de concentrare. Cei doi sunt adusi in fata plutonului de executie de catre localnici sub acuzatia furtului unei paini. In momentul in care cei doi urmeaza sa fie executati, localnicii aleg sa-i elibereze. Finalul este ambiguu: oamenii fie i-au crutat pe tineri, fie le-au luat viata.

EXHIBITION
Neighbours who Disappeared
The project Neighbours Who Disappeared provides young people (12-21 years old) with an opportunity to search for neighbours who disappeared from their neighbourhood – particularly during the Second World War – and who were then mostly marked, restricted, persecuted, and finally liquidated. This project’s topic, however, is in the first place the life of the WW II. students and children in the same schools children go to today, and what were the reasons for their sudden departure.

Tribute to the Child Holocaust Victims
The second stage of the project called A Tribute to the Child Holocaust Victims addresses again young people aged 12-21 and proposes tht they work independently on the stories of people who lived with their neighbours in a harmony until WWII and who were then mostly marked, restricte, persecuted, and finally liquidated. This projct’s topic, however is in the first place the life of the children and youngsters in the same community where children-participants live today.

FILM
Short Long Journey, Czech Republic, 2009, 82 min.
Director: Martin Hanzlicek
Producers: Fedor Gal, Jarmila Polakova

„About people, not only about Jews, about the evil in us, not only about the holocaust, about the present not only about the past“
In April 1945 Vojtech Gal was murdered on the way from Sachsenhausen to Schwerin. In April 2008 his son walked the same route in an attempt to find his father’s grave and leave a testimony. He was accompanied by friends, film makers and fellow pilgrims. They did not understand everything they came across. They could not comprehend some of the people with whom they talked. But it never occurred to them even for a moment that they were travelling
without aim and meaning. They give harsh personal witness of their journey, anticipating neither agreement nor tolerance.

Diamonds of the Night, Cehoslovacia, 1964, 64 min.
Director: Jan Nemec
Screenplay: Arnost Lustig

Diamonds of the Night is set in Czechoslovakia during World War II. Two Jewish youths escape from a concentration camp-bound train. Captured by local peasants on a charge of stealing bread, the boys are sentenced to a firing squad. The men prepare to execute the boys, but simply laugh as they walk away instead of executing them. The ending is ambiguous: The men either actually spared the boys, or they could be walking into the afterlife.

MUSIC
Concert Naches
The Klezmer band NACHES interprets the traditional and the not so traditional folk music of the East European Jews. The band has taken part of many important Klezmer festivals, for example Klez- Fest in the UK. All songs are performed in Yiddish by Barbora Baranova.

Jakub Cernohorsky – violin
Tomas Novotny – concertina
Tomas Filip – double-bass
Rostislav Mikeska – percussion
