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.
  1. what are the underlying meanings of memorials?
  2. Do memorials draw too bright a line between the past and present?
  3. 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)

This will be our first speaker inside our building, but we’re also sharing it on Zoom; it just requires advanced registration. If this seems like something that would interest you or that the Aitz Chaim community would enjoy, please spread the word.

PLEASE REGISTER HERE

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
