On 15 February I gave a couple of workshops at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre.
One session was for survivors and the other for staff and members.

This was the first time I had presented specifically to a group of survivors, although I had filmed several survivors’ testimonies in the past.
I showed photos from my trips to the Baltics & Eastern Europe as well as some videos from my Zog Nit Keynmol project for King David & Herzlia Schools.
The most noticeable outcome was the positive reaction to my initiative to get our youth learning and singing Zog Nit Keynmol, the Partisan Song.
