          Vy mě asi neznáte, ale za to já si moc dobře pamatuju některé z vašich předků. Zejména ty, kteří se za války klaněli náckům až se jima sami stali, zatímco já držkou ryl v zemi, abych jich co nejvíce sejmul. Doteď se mi dělá zle při vzpomínce na všechny ty slizký český fašisty, bezpáteřní úředníky, četníky a bachaře, kteří si zřídili vlastní koncentrák v Letech u Písku. Zabásli v něm víc než tisíc lidí, jenom proto že byli Romové a ty, který nenechali zemřít přímo tam, poslali zavraždit do Osvětimi. Hrůzy Osvětimi doteď páchnou v Letech — a to doslova: na místě dnes stojí prasečák. Složili byste hnůj v Terezíně nebo výkaly v Lidicích? Vracím se, protože je mi z toho zle. Vracím se, abych si na vás posvítil – jako když jsem poprvé promnul oči na Letné. Vracím se a vím, že to víte. Plakáty v Terezíně, Praze a Brně mi řekly, že vás viděly. Vracím se a moje první kroky vedly do Let. Na zdech prasečáku jsou tak od včerejší noci siluety lidí, které připomínají všechny nevinné, kteří byli v Letech zavraždeni. Rudé skvrny připomínají prolitou krev. Jako během fašismu, tak i teď přicházím jako vaše černý svědomí. Černý jako noc, ve které ožívám. Černý jako Cigán, který se už z Let nevrátil. Černý jako stín za vámi. Z nočních střech — možná, že i z té nad vaší hlavou, Pérák

                A short animation from the book Drawings from the Gulag. The book consists of over 130 drawings and texts by Danzig Baldaev -- author of the acclaimed Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Volumes I, II, III -- describing the history, horror and peculiarities of the Gulag system from its inception in 1918. His work as a prison guard allowed Baldaev to travel across the former USSR and witness scenes of everyday life in the Gulag first-hand, chronicling this previously closed world from both sides of the wire. The drawings, made during the Communist period, form a devastating document, a haunting echo of the works of Varlam Shalamov and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. With every vignette, Baldaev brings his characters to vivid life: from the lowest zek (inmate) to the most violent tattooed vor (thief), the practices and inhabitants of the Gulag system are revealed in incredible and shocking detail. He documents the contempt shown by the authorities to those imprisoned, and the transformation of these citizens into survivors or victims. This graphic depiction exposes the systematic methods of torture and mass murder of millions undertaken by the administration, as well as the atrocities committed by criminals on their fellow inmates.

                    http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/no-man-is-an-island--2/x/3640141 Why "No Man is an Island"? Stories like this come along once in a generation. And the story behind our proposed film is perhaps one of the greatest of the generation of our parents and grandparents who valiantly fought tyranny and oppression during the hard years of the Second World War in Greece. But ours isn't one of resistance, sabotage and bombs and bullets-- against the occupier. "No Man is an Island" is a story of soft power-- the victory of humanity over hatred; and, compassion over cruelty. Our short film will tell the story-- the unique in all of Europe survival story-- of the only Jewish community that didn't lose a single soul during the Holocaust. It is a story of heroism that needs to be told-- not only for future generations, but for the current one. Although it happened seventy years ago, the message is timeless and resonates with contemporary society. Our film will educate and inspire a new generation and generations to come by making our history relevant. Furthermore, at a time in history when the image of Greece and Greeks has reached new lows in the international media, this film will do wonders by shining a positive light on one of the world's greatest stories of hope and humanity-- common Greek ideals that have been forgotten in these trying times of social and economic crises that are spreading across Europe and the world. Simultaneously, with the rise of Neo-Nazi activity in Greece-- we need to show the world that this kind of hatred is not part of the Greek reality. Most importantly, this film will share a largely unknown and untold story of how two men and 35,000 citizens of a Greek Island stood on the side of goodness and humanity and stared evil in the face. "No Man is an Island" is a film that must be made. It is a story that must be told. With your help, this can become a reality. Our budget is more than $150,000 to shoot the short film in Greece and ultimately submit it to festivals throughout the world. We will raise half of it from major donors and the balance ($75,000) from a community of people around the world, like you! Sincerely, Gregory Pappas & Steven Priovolos Producers

                      Eine im Inneren des Berliner Holocaustmahnmals fest installierte Kamera mit starrer Blickrichtung entlang eines der Gassen des Mahnmahls beobachtet an einem Tag im Herbst 2011 das, was sich dort zufällig abspielt. Moderne Menschen huschen durchs Bild oder trödeln auf die Kamera zu. Jugendliche spielen Verstecken. Eltern laufen hinter ihren Kindern her. Es herrscht eine Atmosphäre von unschuldigem Sonntagnachmittagvergnügen. Zeitvergessen und irgendwie geschichtslos. Dieses auf der visuellen Ebene unschuldige, naive Geschehen wird konterkariert durch die Audioebene mit seinen historischen Reden der Naziverbrecher Goebbels und Himmler und eines ihrer Opfer (Charlotte Grunow) sowie einer musikalischen Ebene scharfer elektronischer Klänge, die über weite Strecken an die Sirenen erinnern, die während des Holocaustgedenktages in ganz Israel zu hören sind. In diesem Video treffen Vergangenheit und Gegenwart auf eine ganz eigentümliche Art zusammen. Verdeutlicht wird u.a. dass all die „modernen“ Menschen die im Video zu sehen sind, für die Opfer wie auch für die Täter eines vergangenen Verbrechens wie des Holocausts stehen, aber eben genauso für die Opfer und Täter gegenwärtiger und zukünftiger Verbrechen ähnlicher Art. Naivität und Unschuld sind ein Privileg. Ein Privileg allerdings auf dem man sich nicht ausruhen darf, will man es nicht verlieren. Geschichtsvergessenheit und der Überdruß an vergangenem Gräuel sind also keine Garantie für ein besseres Leben. Das Gegenteil ist der Fall! Andreas Weiser
