Culture Video Warsaw museum tells forgotten history of Poland’s Jews France

Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski and his Israeli counterpart, Reuven Rivlin, officially inaugurate the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw on Tuesday, nearly a year and a half after it first opened to the public.

Built on the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, the museum recounts the rich history of Polish Jews, a community that was all but wiped out during the Holocaust. It is named after the Hebrew word for both “Poland” and “rest here”.

Although it has attracted more than 400,000 visitors since it opened to the public in April, 2013, the museum was never formally inaugurated.

On Tuesday, Komorowski and Rivlin will at long last unveil POLIN’s core exhibition, A 1000-Year History of Polish Jews.

The exhibit was created by a team of scholars and curators under the direction of New York University Professor Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett.

It consists of eight galleries, each examining a different period in the history of Polish Jews, from tales of Jews’ arrival in the country to today’s tentative attempts to reclaim Poland’s Jewish past.

Highlights include centuries-old manuscripts, a scale replica of a sumptuously decorated synagogue and a vast network of multimedia installations, all housed inside a visually striking building whose serene glass façade is broken only by a large crack evoking the Biblical crossing of the Red Sea.

Centre of Jewish life

Jews first arrived in Poland during the Middle Ages. By the mid 18th-century, there were 750,000 living across Poland and Lithuania, then a part of the same kingdom, having been chased out of western Europe.

Over the years, that number steadily grew, turning the country into the global centre of Jewish culture.

By 1939 there were 3.3 million Jews in Poland, the equivalent of around 10 percent of the country’s population. Only between 200,000 to 300,000, however, would survive World War II.

Poland’s Jewish community has since dwindled, largely due to emigration. Polish Jews now number around 20,000, though it is estimated that there are tens of thousands of Poles of Jewish descent who either do not identify with the community or are unaware of their heritage.

The museum’s creation has coincided with an unexpected “coming out” of a third-generation of descendants of Jews who survived the Holocaust.

For instance, a play entitled “The Hideout”, which premiered in Warsaw on Saturday, tells the tale of people who spent two years hiding in closets or under floors during the Nazi occupation. Over the course of the play, it becomes clear that the trauma of the Holocaust runs so deep that survivors dare not speak of it to their children and grandchildren.

Private donors, Diaspora Jews and Poles raised 33 million euros ($42 million) to pay for the museum’s core exhibition, while the city of Warsaw and Poland’s Culture Ministry funded the building to the tune of 42.5 million euros.

What To Expect At A Synagogue –

Going to synagogue for the first time can sometimes be a daunting experience. The architecture may be unfamiliar, the ritual items foreign and words are used in languages other than English.

Knowing what to expect, in advance of your first visit, will help you feel more comfortable in this space.

To that end, we have created a new video, What To Expect At A Synagogue, that takes us inside the building and into the sanctuary. Guided by Rabbi Emma Kippley-Ogman of Kehillath Israel, a Conservative synagogue in Brookline, Massachusetts, we are introduced to the items we might find in the lobby, or just outside the sanctuary; we are taken into the sanctuary for an overview of the features in the space; and we are even given an up close look at items used during services, such as prayer books and a Torah scroll. As we move through, words and concepts are translated into English and explained.

Joachim Prinz

From Wikipedia

Joachim Prinz (May 10, 1902 – September 30, 1988) was a German-American rabbi who was outspoken against Nazism and became aZionist leader.[1] As a young rabbi in Berlin, he was forced to confront the rise of Nazism, and eventually emigrated to the United States in 1937. There he became vice-chairman of the World Jewish Congress, an active member of the World Zionist Organization and a participant in the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington.[2]

Prinz was born in the village of Bierdzany (near Oppeln) in the Prussian province of Silesia.

Prinz was born to a Jewish family. Early on, he became motivated by a charismatic rabbi and Prinz took an increasing interest in Judaism. His Jewish roots grew even stronger following his mother’s death. By 1917, he had also joined Blau Weiss (Blue White), the Zionist youth movement.

At 21, Joachim Prinz received his Ph.D. in philosophy, and had minored in Art History, at the University of Giessen. He was ordained as a rabbi at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Breslau. He married Lucie Horovitz, the daughter of the seminary’s most prominent professor. She died in Berlin shortly after giving birth to their daughter Lucie. Prinz married Hilde Goldschmidt in 1932. They had three children, Michael (born in Berlin), Jonathan and Deborah (both born in the United States)…………..From Wikipedia

Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent – Official Trailer

Coming Soon from Menemsha Films!…

Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent uncovers the dramatic story of a courageous religious leader whose passion for justice compelled him to speak out against bigotry over the course of five decades. As a young rabbi in Berlin in the 1930s, Joachim Prinz preached openly against the Nazi Regime and saved many lives by encouraging Jews to leave Germany. Twenty years later, Prinz became a prominent leader of the civil rights movement in the US alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., culminating in his stirring speech at the 1963 March on Washington in which he proclaimed, ‘America must not become a nation of onlookers! America must not remain silent.’ Prinz also helped build the State of Israel and spoke out boldly for peace in the Middle East.

Jewish Partisans Tribute

Tribute to the brave warriors that fought against Nazi tyranny and oppression in WWII. Here are the lyrics to this famous partisan song (sung by Chava Alberstein) called Zog Nit Keynmol:

Partisans Song – zog nit keyn mol

Daniel sings the hebrew version of the Partisans’ song. Written by Hirsch Glick (1922-1944)

Hebrew words:

אַל נָא תֹּאמַר: הִנֵּה דַּרְכִּי הָאַחֲרוֹנָה,
אֶת אוֹר הַיּוֹם הִסְתִּירוּ שְׁמֵי הָעֲנָנָה
זֶה יוֹם נִכְסַפְנוּ לוֹ עוֹד יַעַל וְיָבוֹא
וּמִצְעָדֵנוּ עוֹד יַרְעִים: אֲנַחְנוּ פֹּה

The words in English and in Yiddish:

Never say this is the final road for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!

From lands so green with palms to lands all white with snow.
We shall be coming with our anguish and our woe,
And where a spurt of our blood fell on the earth,
There our courage and our spirit have rebirth!

The early morning sun will brighten our day,
And yesterday with our foe will fade away,
But if the sun delays and in the east remains —
This song as password generations must remain.

This song was written with our blood and not with lead,
It’s not a little tune that birds sing overhead,
This song a people sang amid collapsing walls,
With pistols in hand they heeded to the call.

Therefore never say the road now ends for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!

Zog nit keyn mol az du geyst dem letstn veg,
Khotsh himeln blayene farshtein bloye teg.

Gilad Atzmon on ‘Jew, Judaism, Jewishness’ – an interview with Bill Alford

Author of runaway best seller The Wandering Who? discusses Three Jewish ID Categories: Religious Jew, Born a Jew and Politicized Jew aka Jewishness.

Jewishness pertains most. It is a problematic mix of ideology and culture. Atzmon characterized Jewishness as different manifestations of Jewish self-loving. Zionism, he observes, is just one form of Jewishness amongst many. Jewish Left is as exeptionalist and similarly exclusive.

Atzmon emphasizes the bane of Political Correctness – politics that allows for no opposition. He submits Political Correctness has been a Jewish Left Project for forty years, the period hearts & minds of The West have been essentially captured.

The important questions about Israel, and its supporting Lobby, are not even asked – What Is Jewishness and what are the relationships between Jews, Judaism, Zionism and Jewishness?

What would happen if it were proved to you that God exists? How would it make you feel? Aish HaTorah’s Rabbi Moshe Zeldman discusses the importance of being objective within one’s intellectual pursuits and being careful to avoid emotional bias.

“If we’re open to truth and we’re open to objectivity, we can make amazing discoveries about what’s really out there in the world.”

Rabbi Moshe Zeldman was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He has been involved in Jewish activism since his undergraduate years at the University of Toronto, where he studied Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence. Rabbi Zeldman was elected national chairman of the Canadian Jewish Students Network, led one of the first Jewish delegations to visit the concentration camps in Poland, and was involved in lobby efforts with Canada’s Prime Minister on a variety of Jewish and Israel-related issues. He has served on the executive board of the World Union of Jewish Students, and has lectured to Jewish communities in 15 countries across the globe. He teaches on a variety of Jewish topics for Aish HaTorah, AEPi, Birthright, Hillel, the Maimonides program at Princeton, Tel Aviv and Hebrew University, and NCSY. Rabbi Zeldman resides in Jerusalem with his family.

Patrick Modiano Wins Nobel Prize In Literature 2014 – France’s Modiano Won Literature Nobel

French novelist Patrick Modiano has won the 2014 Nobel Prize in literature.
Modiano, the author of Missing Person and Lacombe Lucien – which was made into a film by Louis Malle – was the bookies favourites overnight. He beat a competitive field that included Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Japanese author Haruki Murakami, Belarusian investigative journalist and author Svetlana Alexievich, and Syrian poet Adonis.
Modiano, 69, published his first novel, La Place de l’Etoile, in 1968; he won the Prix Goncourt in 1978, and over the following three decades he has confirmed his status with a celebrated body of work, including Out of the Dark and Dora Bruder. “Actually, I never thought of doing anything else,” he said of his literary career in 2011 to France Today. “I had no diploma, no definite goal to achieve. But it is tough for a young writer to begin so early. Really, I prefer not to read my early books. Not that I don’t like them, but I don’t recognise myself anymore, like an old actor watching himself as a young leading man.”
Modiano was born in a west Paris suburb two months after World War II ended in Europe in July 1945. His father was of Jewish Italian origins and met his Belgian actress mother during the occupation of Paris – and his beginnings have strongly influenced his writing. The Swedish Academy, which selects Nobel Literature winners, praised Modiano “for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation”.
The American authors Philip Roth and Thomas Pynchon were once again overlooked for the biggest prize in literature. Modiano takes home eight million kronor (£693,000).
The Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 has just been awarded to Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyrarthi Malala Yousafzai – 17 year old Pakistani girl – Known for her activism for rights to education and for women Wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC, about her life under Taliban – 9 October 2012: Malala boarded her school bus in the northwest Pakistani district of Swat
