The Pageant

Trasfoco: And Life Goes On Section

Monuments, documentaries, archives, museums and concentration camps turned into places for Memory (in uppercase). Primo Levi, Paul Celan, Art Spiegelman, Hannah Arendt, Klaus Lanzmann. Efforts sustained over many decades to leave an unforgettable record of what, for at least three generations, was considered a black hole in the history of humanity: the Shoah. The systematic, heinous and unacceptable murder of millions of Jews in German concentration camps. One by one, as individuals. Altogether, as a mass of slaves: fodder for the crematorium. Seventy-five years later, in the city of Haifa, Israel, holocaust survivors have to take part in a beauty pageant with the goal of raising funds for the old peoples home where they live.
