An inspiring section of the whole program was an exhibition from the works of pupils of the Trmice elementary school near Ústí nad Labem, who worked, under the guidance of their teachers Jindřiška Waňková and Jitka Löblová, on the research within the project “Neighbors Who Disappeared” (The Langweills Who Disappeared). In addition to the presentation of research results, two short cartoon films ensuing from the work on this topic were also screened.
Evenings were devoted to art connected with the Holocaust, and not only works created locally. Apart from the screening of Alfréd Radok´s classical movie Daleká cesta (Long Journey) (1948), mention should be made of Thursday’s performance of the Disman Radio Children’s Ensemble, with Michal Macourek´s piano accompaniment, presenting the children’s opera Brundibár by Hans Krása and Adolf Hoffmeister. On Saturday, Czech actor Jaroslav Achab Haidler from the Činoherák Theater in Ústí nad Labem appeared in a one-man performance entitled Mr. Theodor Mundstock, based on the book of the same name written by Ladislav Fuks.
