Commemoration with Kristiansand and Arendal

Kristiansand/ Arendal

It has become a tradition in Kristiansand and Arendal to gather all the ninth graders from the region to mark the commemoration day. More than 1500 students will attend the three days program in the cities of Kristiansand and Arendal. Louise Kahn will tell about her Jewish family's history of persecution, escape and deportation during the Holocaust in Norway. She will also share her own experiences of violence and discrimination from neo Nazis in Oslo in the 1990's. She is currently an active musician and manager in Tel Aviv. The renowned pop artist Pål Rake will contribute musically. Participants from the project ""Jødiske veivisere"" (Jewish pathfinders) will contribute to the program in Kristiansand. The commemorations in southern Norway are a collaboration between Arkivet, the Red Cross West Agder, the UN Association South, Kristiansand Municipality and the municipality of Arendal.
