Closing Ceremony

 

In memory of the Night of Broken Glass (Reichspogromnacht), a pogrom against Jews on 9-10 November 1938 in Germany, Leipzig International Secondary School will be taking part in a variety of different projects and events. All units have been carefully picked and prepared for the relevant age groups.

LIS is hosting a panel debate discussing Jewish life in Germany and Europe, on 8 November, 18:30, in the Aula. Rabbi Zsolt Balla, Dr. Frank Britsche (University of Leipzig) and Henry Lewkowitz (Erich-Zeigner-Haus) will be the participants. The language of the discussion will be in German. No tickets or entrance fee required!

In 1965, Peter Weiss created a seismic play The Investigation, which illustrates the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials of 1963-65 (for further information please read https://www.britannica.com/topic/The-Investigation). This drama play contains original interviews and for that reason will be a very powerful, deep and real performance by our Secondary Drama Group.

We would also like to make you aware of the annual Stolperstein cleaning on 9 November, in which Upper School students under the guidance of their teachers commemorate the victims Rebecca, Simon and son Osias Wydra, in Waldstraße 61 (http://www.stolpersteine.eu/en/). In the evening, the vigil and prayers for peace is taking place at 17:00 in St. Nikolas Church.  

We would like to welcome everyone to any of the above community events, becoming an active part in the student’s project LIS Against Anti-Semitism and Racism.
