A chamber performance with music and songs about the children Moshe and Stella and their stories with a happy ending.
Memoria deals with the burden of remembering and the commitment not to forget, with the challenges of returning home after deportation, and with a stranger singing under a tree.
The performance is dedicated to the writers Primo Levi and Jean Améry who survived Auschwitz only to commit suicide later.
The true stories about Moshe and Stella come from the book by Yaffa Eliach: Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust. In the performance there is a quotation from the poem by Paul Celan: Death Fugue.
