Already for the fourth time Łódź will hold THE MEMORIAL DAYS. On 25–27 January 2014 the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, established by the UN, will be commemorated. Once again, thanks to the cooperation of the Social and Cultural Association of Jews in Poland (TSKŻ), Stefan Jaracz Theatre in Łódź and the Marshall Office in Łódź, for three days of the MEMORIAL DAYS you will have the opportunity to attend many interesting lectures, watch two theatrical plays and a documentary titled „Portrait Painter”, visit an exhibition dedicated to synagogues and Jewish cemeteries. Whereas already on Monday, 27th January, in Poznański’s Palace it will be possible to attend a concert by Olga Mieleszczuk „Li-La-Lo – Między Warszawą a Tel-Awiwem” [Li-La-Lo-Between Warsaw and Tel Aviv].
„On 27th January, numerous ceremonies dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust take place around the world. The Social and Cultural Association of Jews in Poland has recounted the history of the Holocaust and preserved the memory of the victims of the Holocaust since the times of the People’s Republic of Poland, when the Jewish subject matter was neither fashionable nor popular. Together with Stefan Jaracz Theatre and the Marshall Office we decided to add Łódź to the list of the cities commemorating the International Holocaust Remembrance Day,” says Artur Hofman, President of the board of TSKŻ.
Already for the fourth time in Łódź, during the MEMORIAL DAYS, in Stefan Jaracz Theatre you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourselves with the world of culture and history of the Polish Jews. Bearing in mind great popularity of the previous editions of the event, this year, the organizers prepared numerous attractions: lectures, theatrical performances, an exhibition, screening of a TVP documentary. After the weekend filled with interesting events, namely on Monday, 27th January, at the Radegast Station will take place laying of the flowers, whereas in the evening, at the Museum of the City of Łódź (Poznański’s Palace) at the end of the three-day event, it will be possible to listen to pre-war songs performed in Polish and Hebrew.
