Abolish commemoration!

The »Dissonanz« Author Collective announced an English translation of
their book ‚Gedenken abschaffen. Kritik am Diskurs zur Bombardierung
Dresdens 1945′ on www.abolishcommemoration.org : Abolish commemoration.
Critique of the discourse relating to the bombing of Dresden in 1945.

With the publication of the German version in February 2013, critical
historians and antifascist groups already started to dismantle the myth
of Dresden on a local and statewide scale. The Author Collective now
wants to intervene in the ongoing reproduction of the myth in
international discourses. Moreover, they hope to make arguments against
the commemoration of the bombing accessible to scholars, political
activists and other interested people who are not part of the
German-speaking world.

cafém in february

The 15th February will be the date for the 17th version of the cafém. As it might get busy around that date we decided to have a relaxed sunday and watch a movie.

The movie is an intimate glimpse into the world of two jewish friends who live together in Berlin. Having survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Germany after the war, it is the food they cook together that they remember their childhoods, maintain a bond to each other and answer questions of heritage, memory and identity. As the film follows them through their daily lives, a portrait emerges of two women with a light sense of humor, vivid stories, and a deep fondness for good food. Created by Oma’s granddaughter Alexa, the film captures their ongoing struggle to retain a part of their past while remaining very much engaged in the present.

We want to warn in advance, that the movie has some fleshy scenes that might be too much for some people. But don’t be afraid, there wont be meat in the cafèm, instead we will have a delicious vegan buffet as always. You are welcome to bring some good stuff.
