In the lecture, Maja Kutin, a leading collaborator in the project of cataloging the book heritage of the pre-war Slovenian community in Prekmurje, will present the stories behind the selected treasures of prayer books and ritual books. Members of the local Jewish community used the Hebrew Bible and the Torah with references from the former rabbis of Murska Sobota to swear an oath before the Murska Sobota court, and the signatures in mourning prayer books for the dead reveal the stories of families that influenced the economic and social development of Prekmurje. The valuable collection is kept in the Provincial and Study Library of Murska Sobota.

Sefer Barcelona, Jewish Book Festival: Memory

As part of the extensive program of the EUropean Days of Jewish Culture in Catalonia, where several Jewish cultural festivals join forces to work together, we find Sefer Barcelona. As is usual in many European cities, Barcelona hosts an event dedicated to the Jewish book in broad sense – that is to say: from literature to thought, from history to philosophy.

The previous editions of Séfer were born from the will of various organizations and institutions to work together to make possible a diverse and open cultural event that could have a continuity and above all, an own mark.

Therefore, in the Sefer program, lectures are held by local and foreign Jewish authors, but also by non-Jewish authors who have dealt with aspects related to Jewish history or culture, and even specialists, addressing different languages and cultures, with the willingness to discuss on issues of the past and the present in the light of all these subjectivities.

Lesung: Daniel Becker: Die drei Emigrationen der Sonja Berg

Veranstaltet von der Jüdischen Gemeinde Braunschweig.

»Wenn du mich fragst, wo meine Heimat ist, dann muss ich dir sagen: ich weiß es nicht …« Staunend blickt die 83-jährige Sonja Berg auf ihr Leben zurück. »Dreimal musste ich emigrieren. 1918 aus Russland, 1934 aus Nazideutschland und 1962 aus dem Südafrika der Apartheid. Meine Familie ist in alle Himmelsrichtungen zerstreut – diese Emigrationen werden ein Stück von dir!«

Sonja und ihr Mann Heinz erzählen ihre Geschichte in den 1980er-Jahren dem damals 18-jährigen Autor. Er ist fasziniert von dem Kaleidoskop der großen und kleinen Ereignisse des 20. Jahrhunderts, das sich aus dieser jüdischen Familiensaga ergibt. Es ist noch die Zeit des Kalten Krieges, viele Schauplätze der Geschichte liegen unerreichbar hinter dem Eisernen Vorhang. Die Öffnung der Grenzen fällt zusammen mit dem Lebensende des alten Ehepaars.

Autorinnenlesung: Jüdisch Jetzt! Junge Jüdinnen und Juden über ihr Leben in Deutschland

Veranstaltet von der Gesellschaft für Christlich-jüdische Zusammenarbeit Niedersachen-Ost

Autorinnenlesung mit Andrea von Treuenfeld. Die meisten Nichtjuden in Deutschland sind noch nie – oder zumindest nicht bewusst – einem jüdischen Menschen begegnet sind. Dementsprechend halten sich in der nichtjüdischen Mehrheitsgesellschaft oftmals uralte Klischees oder bestimmen undifferenzierte Neuzuschreibungen das Bild. Wie aber sieht das jüdische Leben im heutigen Deutschland wirklich aus? Wie fühlen sich Jüdinnen und Juden in diesem Land? Und was bedeutet eigentlich jüdisch, wenn man sie selbst danach fragt?

In Gesprächen mit der Autorin haben Noam Brusilovsky, Sveta Kundish, Garry Fischmann, Lena Gorelik, Dr. Sergey Lagodinsky, Shelly Kupferberg, Daniel Grossmann, Anna Staroselski, Daniel Kahn, Helene Shani Braun, Prof. Michael Barenboim, Deborah Hartmann, Jonathan Kalmanovich (Ben Salomo), Anna Nero, Philipp Peyman Engel, Nelly Kranz, Dr.
