Ivrit scheli

3. November um 14:00 - 17:00
Museum Dorotheergasse, Dorotheergasse 11
1010 Wien

Ivrit means “Hebrew.” Scheli means “my.” “My Hebrew” is an exciting program for young people ages 6 to 10 who are curious and creative. We’ll search the whole museum for Hebrew letters on objects – paintings, Torah ornaments, and even dishes.

Simon Wiesenthal Lecture: The Future of the Stalinist Past (Nanci Adler)

21. November um 18:30
Dachfoyer des Haus-, Hof- und Staatsarchivs, Minoritenplatz 1
1010 Wien , Österreich

What are the prospects for reconciliation when the state denies, ignores, or co-opts a history of repression? Thirty years after the end of a dictatorship that claimed millions of victims, aside from symbolic reparations, the post-Soviet government(s) have implemented little of the institutionalised transitional justice mechanisms to reckon with this past.
