FROM THE MONTANA JEWISH PROJECT, HELENA
- WHERE? From THE Montana Jewish Project, HELENA
- WHEN? Sunday, 10/30/2022, at 2:00PM.
- WHAT? Dr. Ari Laskin, a documentary film maker, will lead a discussion about his current work called Memorial’s Undoing. His project is about Holocaust memorials, particularly Babyn Yar, and he raises some interesting questions on which he would like feedback.
- what are the underlying meanings of memorials?
- Do memorials draw too bright a line between the past and present?
- Are there ways to make memorials that don’t let us “off the hook”, since the trauma of these massacres continues (and the conditions that cause them are still occuring)
