“Vida, libertad y el legado de los supervivientes del Holocausto”

El 27 de enero de 2015 se conmemorará el 70º aniversario de la liberación del campo de concentración y exterminio nazi de Auschwitz-Birkenau, que actualmente figura en la Lista del Patrimonio Mundial de la UNESCO. Más de un millón cien mil personas fueron asesinadas en Auschwitz, entre ellas más de un millón de judíos y miles de polacos, gitanos, prisioneros de guerra del ejército soviético y opositores políticos de toda Europa.

El Día Internacional que conmemora esta efeméride simboliza nuestro respeto hacia los supervivientes y nuestro homenaje al recuerdo de las víctimas, y constituye también un llamamiento a la acción. 

La UNESCO nació al término del Holocausto con la convicción de que una paz verdadera descansa en la comprensión mutua entre los pueblos y las culturas, que se nutre de la educación y el intercambio de conocimientos, todo lo cual apela a lo mejor de nosotros. El Holocausto nos ha mostrado lo peor y el recuerdo de las víctimas debe acompañarnos en nuestra búsqueda de un mundo en el que ya no tengan cabida horrores de esa magnitud.   

Irina Bokova, Directora General de la UNESCO

Es una oportunidad para los Estados Miembros de realizar nuevos esfuerzos contra el antisemitismo y el racismo, y de crear programas educativos que contribuyan a evitar que en el futuro puedan ocurrir atrocidades similares. La educación desempeña una función esencial en esta tarea, al fortalecer a la sociedad para que haga frente a esos delitos mediante el fomento de la prevención, el debilitamiento de los prejuicios, la promoción de la coexistencia pacífica y los derechos humanos, y el cultivo del respeto hacia todos los pueblos.

A medida que pasa el tiempo, el recuerdo del genocidio se aleja y desparecen los últimos supervivientes, crece la necesidad de comprender su sentido y educar a los jóvenes al respecto. La UNESCO promueve la enseñanza relativa al genocidio en el mundo entero, con la convicción de que su conocimiento ayudará a que los jóvenes, cualesquiera sean sus orígenes o culturas, adquieran consciencia de los mecanismos que pueden sumir en la violencia a las sociedades y de los medios de prevenirlos.

MIÈRCOLES, 21 DE ENERO 2015 - Premiere Screening, Sala I

7:30 pm

Annihilation, the Destruction of Europe's Jews, a documentary film series by William Karel and Blanche Finger

Produced by Pawel Rozenberg, Céline Nusse, coproduced by Zadig Productions and Looks Film

Texts read by Yvan Attal, Lambert Wilson and Rut El Yuvi.

(In partnership with France 2)

The film “Annihilation, the Destruction of Europe's Jews” examines the historical events building up to the Holocaust from 1933 to 1945, the year when the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau camp was finally freed. Producers William Karel and Blanche Finger explore how the Holocaust was methodically conceived, developed and executed to obliterate Jewish identity – communities, cadavers, language, heritage - not only in Germany, but also in all countries occupied by the Reich. Expert analyses, provided by eminent historians, shed light on the workings of this genocidal project, which mobilized the entire state apparatus from beginning to end: progressive segregation, territorial exclusion, mass murder by shooting on the eastern front, and death camps. With testimonies by writers like Aaron Appelfeld and Daniel Mendelsohn, the film enriches our understanding of Holocaust remembrance, such as survivor witness accounts and the challenges of presenting an integral view of Holocaust in museum practice.

Screening of two episodes, 2 x 52’, French version.
