We are delighted to announce the official opening of the new Centropa exhibition “The Moldova Jewish Family Album” at Muzeul Naţional de Etnografie şi Istorie Naturală in Chisinau on November 16, 2017.
The exhibition will be inaugurated within the framework of our three-day Trans.History seminar for 50 Moldovan, Ukrainian and German educators on the issue of “Civil Society, Social Media and 20th Century Jewish History in Moldova” in Chisinau from November 15 to November 17.
We’ll keep you updated on the seminar on our Trans.History website and on Facebook.
Our award winning multimedia short film “Return to Rivne: A Holocaust Story” is now available with German subtitles on the Centropa website.
“Return to Rivne” tells the story of Shelly Weiner and Raya Kizhnerman who survived the Holocaust hidden in a hayloft, thanks to Ukrainian farmers. Separated in 1945, one of the Shelly emigrated to America after the war, Raya to Russia. It wasn’t until almost 30 years later that they were reunited. In 2013 they traveled to Rivne together, to revisit their wartime hiding place and to retell their story of survival.
We’re currently developing a new exhibition based on our 26 interviews with Jewish Holocaust survivors from Moldova.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on November 15, 2017 in Chisinau, Moldova.
We’ll update this post with more details soon!
