European Days of Jewish Culture @ All over Europe
Sep 2 all-day

September 2 is the date anchoring this year’s European Days of Jewish Culture, a continent-wide event that opens Jewish heritage sites to visitors and programs a plethora of Jewish cultural events.

This year’s theme is “Storytelling.”

In some countries, there are several days (or weeks) of events; in other countries the “Day” takes place on a different date.

You can see individual country programs on the web site.

A Key to the City: Reclaiming the Memory of the Past @ Lviv City Council, Great Hall
Sep 2 @ 12:30 – 13:30

On September 2, at 12.30 pm, in the Great Session Hall of the Lviv City Council, residents and guests of Lviv will  commemorate the Holocaust in Lviv — and  honor  people and institutions who research, preserve and popularize Jewish heritage.

During the ceremony, 75 glass replicas of an ancient synagogue key will be awarded to representatives of cultural and academic institutions, volunteer and public organizations, and individual initiatives that work with Jewish heritage in Lviv and in other cities and towns of former Galicia.

The inspiration for the ceremony was the artistic installation by the American sculptor and researcher Rachel Stevens which consists of 75 glass replicas of a synagogue key. This installation gave the name to the exhibition “A Key to the City”, which presented three ways of discovering and understanding the Jewish heritage of Lviv.

The ceremony “A Key to the City: Reclaiming the Memory of the Past” will launch the commemorative events  for the 75th anniversary of the liquidation of the Ghetto and the Janowska Concentration Camp in Lviv, which will take place on 2 September 2018. These events will be held in different locations of the city, and they are part of the one-year program “Lwów, לעמבערג ‎, Львів, Lemberg’43: The City that Did (not) Survive”
