A link to a video put out by the  presidents of Israel, Germany and the European  Council marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27, 2021. It is 76 years since the liberation of the Auschwitz extermination and concentration camp. The video is made from clips and still photos from 18 photographs on exhibit in the President's Residence (Beit HaNasi) in Jerusalem, seen in the photo above (courtesy Beit HaNasi). At the same time a major exhibit opens in the Willy-Brandt Haus in Berlin showing some 104 large photographs from The Lonka Project. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the exhibition is currently on "online" form, but well worth a visit. So nicely executed - in both German and English. The exhibit will be on until April 11, 2021, so hopefully viewers will be able to visit in person as soon as Covid is more under control. Stay Safe & Be Well. And thanks you to all who put this video together from all of us at The Lonka Project.
