CONDOLENCES

 

It is with great sadness that the team of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum learnt about the passing of Margaret Holzman in Germany on May 14.

Margaret Holzman was the daughter of Helene Holzman, Righteous among the Nations. Both women were awarded with The Life Saving Cross. The story of the Holzman family and the Jewish girl they saved, Fruma Vitkinaitė, is shown in the documentary film ‘Étude of Hope‘. The filmmakers warmly recall the cordial meeting with Margaret Holzman at her home in Giesen.

The team of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum expresses its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Margaret Holzman and especially to Fruma Vitkinaitė-Kučinskienė, who lost her beloved sister.  


SAMUEL BAK‘S LETTER DUE TO HONORARY CITIZENSHIP OF VILNIUS


Opening of Samuel Bak‘s exhibition ‘Stations in Life’ at the museum’s Tolerance Center in 2011.

It is with great humility that I am accepting the award.

My dear Vilnius, since the day it saw me born, gave me the happiest and the most tragic memories of my life. They nourished my artistic journey and gave special meaning to my survival.

For me, this personal award has many co-recipients. It brings to our memory the annihilated community of Vilnius's Jews, of which I am a son. 

I am deeply grateful to the GAON Museum, which understood the meaning of my creative journey, and undertook to help me create an important personal memorial to my city's immeasurable loss.

Please forward my thanks to the Mayor and the Municipality of Vilnius.

With gratitude
Sam
