Watch this video : On a recent trip to Europe, a family of three generations (a Holocaust survivor, his daughter and his grandchildren) dance to Gloria Gaynor’s pop song – ‘I Will Survive’ at concentration camps and memorials throughout Europe.
How does it strike you?
I think I like it. It is so wonderful anti-sacral. If anyone is allowed to dance there, than the survivors and their families. But what will other survivors say? And is it wise to make a stage out of the memorial site on which every survivor and his/her offsprings can do what they want? To whom belongs a momeorial site and a site of crime? What do the memorial peadagogies reckon? I’m very curious!
