Remnants of a Jewish past and one photographer’s personal quest for memories
Very appropriate for the times we are in, unfortunately.
Carol, thank you for a very moving and timely post. I went to the museum website and saw this note about the exhibition:
"Without any shadow of a doubt, Last Folio is a painful, profound experience, a space that shows the cultural destruction of a civilisation, a meditation space that compels us to react, to reflect, to question the world we live in, where many still do not have a voice, and to demand that freedom and tolerance be the fundamental values of the 21st century. It is up to us to have the will and ability to make this change happen."
What for Yuri and Katya was history, is for us the present day. We are witnessing the destruction of the Ukrainian civilisation in real time. I think all of us are struggling with the question of how we have "will and ability to make change happen".
Wow! This is a powerful entry. I am transported to a time in history that repeats itself as I write this note to you. The video was amazing. It made me sad. I think this exhibit must be incredible. One can only wish it might teach people enough about man’s inhumanity to man so that aspect of history would not repeat itself. Bravo to you for sharing this! I enjoyed learning. Thank you!
The suffering they went through is truly unimaginable to all of us who are so blessed.
Truly something every person should hear and read about.
Great article Carol.
