Nothing will be forgotten

Renowned Slovenian literary and film maker and photographer Dušan Šarotar is the author of numerous books of prose, poetry and essays, as well as more than twenty scripts for documentaries and short feature films. The central theme of his novels, poetry and films is the fate of the Jewish community and the Holocaust in Murska Sobota and more widely in Prekmurje. On April 26, 1944, the Nazis and Hungarian fascists deported almost the entire Jewish community from Prekmurje to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Among the handful who survived the war was Šarotar's grandfather Franc Schwartz, "who never spoke about it". His story is also the common thread of Šarotar's novels Billiards in Dobray and Zvezdna karta, and at the forefront of the writer's interest are also memory, sadness, feeling and the human soul. During the lecture, Dušan Šarotar will present the story and fate of the Prekmurje Jews.
