Dialogue in focus of European festival of Jewish culture

By: P.T., STA

Six Slovenian towns joined the European Days of Jewish Heritage, a festival focusing on the diversity of Jewish heritage and its historical role which is this year held in 36 countries.

“Inter-cultural dialogue, the oldest and most fundamental manner of democratic talk, is an antidote to rejection and violence,” said the Maribor Synagogue, the Center of Jewish Cultural Hertiage, the national coordinator of the project in Slovenia. The synagogue opened the door to visitors today to open a visiting exhibition from the National Library of Israel termed Dialogue. In the evening, it hosted a talk with Branko Šömen about his 2020 novel about Nazi camp Auschwitz Tišina za Oči (Silence for the Eyes).
