Seminar "Charlotte Salomon - Etty Hillesum – Hélène Berr"



When receiving so much from someone, it’s a duty to give back a lot.

I wanted to offer to Etty Hillesum, Charlotte Salomon and Hélène Berr the shelter they dreamt for their art. To give them a place in which to share and to meet for a short time but which also bring them a piece of eternity in Israel.  I wanted to transmit the grace and the strengh of their art to the young Israeli generation.


The Seminar « Charlotte Salomon - Etty Hillesum – Hélène Berr - The Life within Them »

  • Is a cultural project about art, women creativity, Jewish memory, history, humanity, transmition and about Europe.
  • Is a seminar for a very large public with a focus on the youth.
