Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin/Asheville 2019

BY KYM VERHOVSHEK
@ VOL 21 ON NOV 30, 2018

Kym Verhovshek has partnered with Carolina Jews for Justice and other local social justice groups to bring the unique and profoundly motivational multi-media concert-drama, Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin to Asheville in June 2019. Music often reaches the heart and soul when words can not. The arts and humanities offer hope and inspiration, and this performance will be led by 8+ weeks of educational programming created for and coordinated with area schools, colleges, and the public. The goal is to create awareness by sharing past experiences, and through education and these conversations to participate in shaping the future.

The Life in Oslo

BY 李濠仲HAO CHUNG LI
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 19, 2015

Mr. Li started by talking about Oslo department stores closed on Sundays, as well as citing some observed examples to show how Oslo is a city emphasizing the green environment, energy re-use, and equal gender rights. He also shared how Oslo is a low profile city, seen from its minimalist decoration, local personality, love of children, gay-friendliness, tolerance for multi-ethnic culture, and focus on environmental protection, sports and fitness. Mr. Li mentioned the establishment of the historical museum, 'Center for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities' on the southern island of Oslo where the records of World War II and the civil war in Norway are kept: Norway is a city with the ability to look inside its soul.

 

李濠仲從奧斯陸的百貨公司週日不營業談起,並舉出生活中一些觀察到的例子,說明奧斯陸是一個重視綠化、能源再利用、男女平權的城市,並分享奧斯陸是一個低調的城市,從極簡風格的裝潢、到當地人的個性,其他像是重視小孩、對同性戀友善,包容多元種族與文化、注重環保、運動健身等,也提到奧斯陸南方小島上成立的歷史博物館「大屠殺研究中心」,紀錄二戰與挪威內戰時的資料,是懂得自省的一個城市。

Silence and Secrets Make Us Sick

BY JUDY DARCY
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 12, 2017

Presenter Judy Darcy tells the story of her father who lost family members in the Holocaust and afterwards kept his Jewishness a secret - even from his children - until a few years before he died in order to keep them safe. She brought the circle back to acts of hatred and bigotry that are on the rise and the importance of the New West community coming together to say yes to diversity and love and hope.
