Short guide to the memory of the Good

Theatrical show inspired from Gabriele Nissim's books Il Tribunale del Bene and La Bontà Insensata. Wright by Paola Bigatto, with Massimiliano Speziani.

Wednesday January. 26 2011 at 9.30 a.m
Milan - Auditorium San Fedele
via Hoepli, 3/b (MM DUOMO)

"Tales of the Righteous people who performed Good Deeds, [...] who, in the direst straights had the courage to undertake rescue and relief operations in favour of the persecuted. Tales which might be lost, dispersed, because they are as little as precious! Only a detective, a collector, a dowser, a gold seeker, a pearl fisher, can retrieve them from memory. This is what I humbly try to do with you today, for it is necessary to remember! Not only the names of the protagonists of these tales, many thousands of names not yet known to the vast majority of you, but also all the smallest details, the intimate motivations concealed behind the achievements of each of these Righteous ".

The show will be followed by a debate with the actor and Gabriele Nissim, author of the books Il Tribunale del Ben (The Tribunal of Good) and La Bontà insensata (Senseless Goodness), Liliana Picciotto, historian in charge of research for Fondazione CDEC, and Pietro Kuciukian, Consul of Armenia in Italy.

the genocide of Jews

In the framework of second world war (1939-1945) Europe witnessed the genocide of the Jewish people (1941-1945). The “final solution“, the extermination of six million Jews, was planned by Hitler who had come on power in Germany in 1933. Since the publication of Mein Kampf, Hitler had planned the nationalsocialist revolution based on a racist ideology.
In the memory of the Jewish people and in the verdict that closed the works of the International Military Court, 6,000,000 victims of the extermination are estimated. As a matter of facts, the most reliable scholars including Raul Hilberg estimate about 5,200,000 victims.
