At this very moment, the Israel's annual "YOM HA'SHOAH - Holocaust Remembrance Day" is starting at Yad Vashem. Every year anew, I am giving links to former articles about the Holocaust but this time, I am also putting an entire movie into the blog. It is the German movie "DOWNFALL" describing the last days of Germany's dictator Adolph Hitler. The movie was very popular in Germany but there was a whole discussion going on whether Hitler's role wasn't made too friendly and human. Doesn't he appear as too nice in the movie ? I don't think so. The Fuehrer Bunker was not a concentration camp and Hilter dealt with his followers in a different way than with enemies.
The movie itself is in German but has English subtitles !!!
After years of living in Jerusalem, I decided to betray the city by moving to Tel Aviv.:-) In the meantime I returned to the Holy City. It is actually very good to be back in Jerusalem !!!
Nevertheless, I am still writing about Jerusalem but also include many other places in Israel.
Until some years ago, I was a Yeshiva (Michlalah) student. First with the national religious and later with the Litvishe. Also got in contact with Chassidut and this subject and lifestyle has never left me.
