Auschwitz liberation 70th anniversary: share your perspectives
We’d like to find out your perspectives on being Jewish in Europe today, and hear how you’re commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz next Tuesday

Next Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp where more than one million European Jews were murdered in gas chambers. British survivors of the Holocaust are expected to gather in central London for an event themed around the phrase ‘keep the memory alive’. The BBC is marking the anniversary, commemorated annually around the world as Holocaust memorial day, with a series of programmes including a screening of Shoah, Claude Lanzmann’s acclaimed 10-hour documentary from 1985. Other events are taking place around the world in countries such as Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand and Japan.

For most members of Europe’s Jewish community, whose family and friends endured the horrors of the second world war, memories are never too distant. Since then, for the most part, Europe has been a safe place to live but events in Paris two weeks ago have significantly raised concerns for some Jewish communities.

Since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices and the subsequent targeting of a kosher supermarket which left four Jewish shoppers dead, there have been heightened security measures for Jewish communities in Europe. Following the killings the French government has deployed several thousand troops and gendarmes to protect Jewish sites, in Belgium soldiers and police have been deployed too after a suspected terrorist plot was thwarted there, and in the UK the Home secretary Theresa May has ordered increased police patrols in Jewish areas.

時代の流れを感じるのはアプリを配布していることでしょうか。もちろんサイトでも同内容を見ることができますが、アプリで伝えたい内容をまとめるというのも一つの流れなんですね。

70 years after the Holocaust, new app brings its voices to modern devices
70 Voices will enable Android and iOS owners to hear from ‘victims, perpetrators and bystanders’ to commemorate anniversary

Seventy years after the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, an Android and iOS application is aiming to provide new insights into the Holocaust for modern-day smartphone and tablet users.
70 Voices: Victims, Perpetrators and Bystanders is the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust, which has made it available as a free download through Google, Amazon and Apple’s app stores.
The app will offer 70 different perspectives on the Holocaust from people who were alive at the time, at a time when the number of people able to give firsthand accounts continues to dwindle.
The app will provide a different “voice” each day for the next 70 days, with a weekly podcast also exploring the material’s themes and implications. The app’s content will also be published on the 70 Voices website.

The Last of the Unjust review – doc about a divisive Holocaust survivor
Claude Lanzmann’s fascinating interview with the only Jewish ‘elder’ who negotiated with Adolf Eichmann is a subtle study in survivor non-guilt
Peter Bradshaw
Thursday 8 January 2015 21.15 GMT

At 87, Claude Lanzmann is still capable of enforcing his film-making personality on European cinema: he is a landmark in the shadow of his great subject, the Holocaust. His film, Shoah, is now best seen not merely as an incomparable record, but as an intervention in history, an insistence on eyewitness testimony and compelling truth. This new film is a remarkable companion to his masterpiece Shoah: a fascinating encounter, recorded in Rome in the 1970s, while working on his great film but not used at the time, for reasons that Lanzmann leaves us to ponder.

It is an interview with Benjamin Murmelstein, an Austrian Jew and last surviving “chairman” of the Theresienstadt ghetto, near Prague, a supposedly comfortable Potemkin-style arrangement that was part of a sickening pantomime of ostensible good faith after the Anschluss. Murmelstein explains that their inhabitants, and the world, were distracted with the fatuous fantasy of being shipped over to Madagascar: a cynical euphemism for the death marches and extermination, in which Murmelstein was held to be complicit. The Nazis coerced leading Jews to be their administrative “elders” there, a queasy use of Judeophobe-propagandist terminology, and Murmelstein was the last surviving example (his predecessors were murdered by the Nazis).
