Night of the Illuminated Synagogues


Yesterday there was the night of the ‘Illuminated Synagogues’ to remember the victims of the November pogroms in 1938. To bring the destroyed synagogues to our minds, every former place was illuminated with a bright spot. The lights were accompanied by a voice installation reading the names of the victims and sounds of breaking glass.

“Es ist geschehen, und folglich kann es wieder geschehen: darin liegt der Kern dessen, was wir zu sagen haben.”
Primo Levi

“It happened, therefore it can happen again: this is the core of what we have to say.”
Primo Levi
