EDJC 2023 > European Days of Jewish Culture in Oporto
Holocaust Museum of Oporto
Admission free. The Holocaust Museum of Oporto, the only one of its kind in the Iberian Peninsula, exhibits objects left behind in Oporto by the refugees in 1940 and depicts Jewish life before, during and after the Holocaust. It also has a replica of the dormitories at Auschwitz and a room of names.
During the visit to the Holocaust Museum of Oporto part of the feature film “The Light of Judah” will be shown, focusing on the Jewish refugees who passed through the city of Oporto. Their lives in tatters, these men, women, children and old people wished to leave Europe as soon as possible and go as far away as they could. “Europe, never again!”, they said.
At 15h00, community member Josef Lassmann will be present to talk with visitors about his mother’s experience in the block run by the “Angel of Death”. In a video, Nacha Lassmann will explain what she lived through. As for Josef’s father, he never said one word about what he experienced in the Holocaust. He only looked ahead. He was 19 years old and his whole family was dead.
The book "Judeus na Lista Negra de Hitler" by Miriam Assor will be introduced at 11:30 (presented by the historian César Santos Silva) and at 16:00 (presenter by the writer Richard Zimler).
