Drzewo życia – koncert inspirowany poezją Chavy Rosenfarb

Koncert „Drzewo życia” zrealizowany zostanie 29 sierpnia 2023 r. w Teatrze Nowym im. Kazimierza Dejmka w Łodzi. Inspiracją kompozycji i scenariusza są poematy Chavy Rosenfarb. W 1947 roku Chava wydała w Londynie zbiór wierszy Di balade fun nechtikn wald (Ballada wczorajszego lasu), a rok później poemat o ojcu Dos lid fun jidiszn kelner Abram (Pieśń o żydowskim kelnerze Abramie) i zbiory wierszy Geto un andere lider (Getto i inne wiersze) oraz Arojs fun gan-ejdn (Wygnanie z raju). Potem została opublikowana jej sztuka Der foigl fun geto (Ptak z getta). Młoda pisarka wciąż szukała formy, która pozwoli jej opisać tragedię Zagłady.

Scenariusz wydarzenia zakłada ujęcie tekstów Chavy (w przekładzie Natalii Krynickiej z języka jidysz) w formę słowno-muzyczną, podczas której kompozycje wykonają łódzcy muzycy współpracujący z Akademią Muzyczną im.

Online meeting with Dr. Ryszard Haber, author of the book “Still Here: A Memoir”

Richard Haber was born in Poland in 1933, the year Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. As a child in the Kraków ghetto, he narrowly escaped death before running away with his parents and starting a risky life on the run.
The family was finally captured, sent on a forced march to Auschwitz, escaped and hid until the end of the war.
Arriving in Australia with little education and even poorer English (knowledge of French, Italian, Polish and Russian was of little help), Haber immediately left the horrors of Europe behind him and started a new life. He married, had children and became a respected cardiologist. He is now 90 and still works part-time.

The meeting promoting the book with memoirs of Richard Habra will be combined with a discussion about his history and the impact of difficult memories in later life, as well as the role of memories as a historical source.

Postmemory – Is This About Me? (in Polish)

Workshop relate to the unique European and later world phenomenon of ‘postmemory’ –indirect knowledge and experience of the past; memory we do not understand, we are concerned about and sometimes even reject it. We invite you to follow the subject in art – monuments, sculptures, museums, excerpts of theatre performance which were artistic ways of expressing the voice of postwar generations; for them II World War was both distanced and very close event building and shaping their perplex identity. Does ‘postmemory’ mean ‘to remember’? Is it possible to remember events we have not lived through or experienced ourselves? Isn’t it enough to simply remember the past and live on? Does postmemory phenomenon still describe our contemporary reality and life?
