Shoah Film Collection 2

Today is another day for commemorating the Holocaust and the liberation of Auschwitz, related to the International Holocaust Commemoration Day, 27 January.

A Virtual Memorial Jaffa 2014
is a particularly relevant event, because it is taking place in Israel, on the other hand is Jaffa (part of Tel-Aviv now), as a venue that port and historical place in terms of the rescue of persecuted Jews and Holocaust survivors and a particular tolerance for immigrant that symbol, at all.

Therefore, I am very proud that Liliana Orbach and her MUZA plus gallery are hosting the event and the screening of the selection of films from Shoah Film Collection.

A Virtual Memorial Jaffa 2014 – is standing in the context of two further events realized on occasion of the International Holocaust Commemoration Day 2014 – A Virtual Memoral Milan 2014 – 25-27 January 2014, which will be explained in detail in the next following article – and A Virtual Memorial Timisoara 2014 – 27 January 2014.

Unfortunately, I am not able to attend personally the screening Jaffa, but I remember Jaffa, when I visited Tel-Aviv 2005. My host Ariel Yannay Shani, artist himself, was located also in Jaffa – a place where the history of thousands of years can be felt emotionally and physically. I like such places because I feel being part of the “Whole”.
