|Memorial in word and image
Requiem for Auschwitz creates a bridge from past to present and into the future.
The project is an obituary for all victims of the Holocaust, a meeting point for representatives of Jewish, Roma, Sinti and other victim groups.
At the same time it is a plea for tolerance, a powerful statement, a cultural fist against discrimination and exclusion.
Between the seven parts of the Requiem, fragments of diaries of in various camps killed victims are recited.
The quotes have a relationship with the intention that the composer gave to each part.
In Amsterdam actors and artists will recite the texts:
‘Razzia’ of Hélène Berr
by Ella van Drumpt
|After Requiem en Kyrie:
‘Call for deportation’ of Peter Ginz
by Bram van der Vlugt
