What happens at a Zikaron BaSalon event?
Zikaron BaSalon takes place in your own living room.
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, a descendant of one, or an academic 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.
My Experience at Zikaron Basalon
“I can't recall the last time I took an active part in a fundamental conversation about the Holocaust. I was thrilled to find out that I was not the only with questions to ask. All of my friends want to gather together again next year. My personal feelings over the course of the evening ranged between heavy emotion and even happiness at certain times.”
