Tomasz Pietrasiewicz "Theatre of memory by the NN Theatre"
The present publication was released on the occasion of the "Grodzka Gate - NN Theatre" Centre receiving the HAC Award for Concord in recognition of its work in the field of Polish-Jewish history commemoration.
This Book is Dedicated to the jewish boy from Kamionka, Nimrod S. Ariav and Severyn Ashkenazy.
The “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre is a local government cultural institution operating in Lublin. Thanks to its location, the Grodzka Gate, leading to the destroyed Jewish Town, the employers of the theatre embarked on a voyage of discovery, salvaging the Memory of this incredible place. The theatre became similar to an “Ark of Memory” in which old photographs, documents and memories are constantly gathered. In the programme realised by our institution great emphasis is put particularly on the historical and symbolic significance of the Grodzka Gate, a former passageway from the Christian to the Jewish Town, which has continued to serve its function of a meeting point between religions and cultures. In the surroundings of the Gate, the space left by the former Jewish Quarter, the NN Theatre has and continues to hold many artistic events exploring the memory of the past while mourning the victims of the Holocaust.
