Witnesses of the Witnesses



Witnesses of the Witnesses

To commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021, on Tuesday February 23 at 19:00 the Embassy of Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute and the South African Holocaust & Genocide Foundation will have a discussion inspired by the film and installation “Witnesses of the Witnesses”. This intergenerational conversation includes H.E. Paolo Cuculi (Ambassador of Italy to South Africa), Lina Kantor Amato (Holocaust Survivor, Island of Rhodes), Dr Gary and Dr Linda Kantor (Lina’s children), Rene Pozniak (Leader of March of the Living, South Africa), and Noah Tradonsky (Alumni of March of the Living, 2015 & Emerging Leaders March of the Living Conference, 2019).

"Witnesses of the Witnesses" is based on the interactive exhibition of the same name displayed at Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome in 2019. The whole project stems from the idea of a group if Italian students who participated in the Journey of Memory to Auschwitz with the support of the Municipality of Rome. “Witness Generation” is the name of this group of highly motivated young people that was created to raise awareness and to take charge of the transmission of the memory of witnesses who survived the extermination camps, so that the expression "not to forget" is not reduced to a mere formula of consolation.
