For the second year in a row, the Open Republic Association will commemorate the 76th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising with a multimedia event created by the artist Gabi von Seltmann. On the night of 18th April, i.e. on the eve of the anniversary of the Uprising, the image of the Great Synagogue rising from the rubble will appear on the wall of the Blue Skyscraper which was constructed on its site. The Great Synagogue, destroyed by the Germans after the fall of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, will be symbolically reconstructed through image, sound and emotion.
“May remembrance and love overcome destruction and death.”
Archival recordings of the cantor of the Great Synagogue, Gerszon Sirota, who died in the Warsaw ghetto, and fragments of the poem “Bashert”, read by its author, Irena Klepfisz, daughter of Michał, a soldier of the Jewish Combat Association, will be played during the ceremony.
The performance will last six minutes (the sequence will be repeated from 9:00 to 11:00 PM).
A guided walking tour of the synagogue and former Jewish ghetto in the heart of Verona.

Located on Plymouth’s historic Hoe, in the shadow of The Citadel, lies the Old Jewish Cemetery. Contained within high stone walls it has always remained hidden from public view. The only clue to its existence is an insignificant door. With the aid of funding from Vital Sparks and Drakes Foundation, an audio trail has been created, bringing to life the lives of those buried.
Sensible footwear required.
MP3s and head phones available on the day or bring your own head phones and/or your own smart phone.
