HISTORY – SURVIVING HISTORY: THE HOLOCAUST REMEMBERED

Submitted by admin on January 21, 2011 – 9:17 amNo Comment

woolfsonAfter travelling the globe this small exhibition brings big aims back to London. Organisers from the not-for-profit organisation Living Imprint bring to light the virtual annihilation of the Jewish population of Vilnius, Lithuania, which was long regarded as the Jerusalem of the North. They also bring an ambitious, if personal, approach to history, with the stated aim of: ‘telling the stories of those individuals and groups whose stories might not otherwise be heard’.

The opening (Tuesday 25th, 7pm) provides a chance to experience this first hand. Amongst other things there will be a talk from holocaust survivor Gena Turgel, as well as a screening of the award winning Surviving History, a short film which documents the testimony of ten survivors from Vilnius.

See www.woolfsonandtay.com for further details and an eye out for a full review in next week’s NFTU.
