International Holocaust Remembrance Day: A Poem

This video contains the readings, performed by a renowned Italian actress and a senior Italian high school student, respectively in English and in Italian, of the introductory poem “Jüdisches Museum” from the book Berlin Triptych by Marina Agostinacchio.

This bilingual book was written after a visit to the Jewish Holocaust Museum in Berlin and contains Marina’s poetry as well as illustrations by two Italian artists, Elena Candeo and Paola Munari.  

The video has been produced and edited by local author Tiziano Thomas Dossena for the commemoration of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2022.
