What Happens in a Zikaron BaSalon Event?
This year, Zikaron Basalon takes place on your phone or computer, through a video meeting.
The participants create their own experience during the event, through an open discussion about the Holocaust and its impact on society across time.
Zikaron BaSalon events consist of three parts:
We invite hosts to screen or read testimonies of Holocaust survivors. If possible, we recommend inviting a Holocaust survivor, second-generation survivor or expert and have direct, face-to face conversations.
Participants join together to discuss their thoughts and relationships with the Holocaust. We offer a diverse collection of discussion materials for you to choose from based on your personal interests.
I can't recall the last time I had an active part in a fundamental conversation about the Holocaust. I was thrilled to find out that I am not the only one asking these questions. Thus, all of my friends wanted to gather together again next year. My personal feelings range between excitement and even happiness at certain moments.
