Jewish Kid Monument ~
Walking today along the Maas River in Rotterdam , I bumped into this Jewish Children’s Monument, with the names I just learned of 686 Rotterdam’s Jewish children that were deported from here via the dutch transit camp Westerbork to the Nazi death camps Sobibór and Auschwitz-Birkenau of the Third Reich. In 2013 this special monument was unveiled for the murdered kids – only one girl survived – here near the former Loods 24 – the harbor warehouse number 24 , behind that still standing stone fence memorial (1992), were around 15000 Jews were gathered in 1942 and 1943 from Rotterdam city and nearby islands and sent on a journey to death.

HOLLAND. Rotterdam. September 11, 2011. Taking a pinhole photo of the Erasmus bridge, using a pinhole in a tin can loaded with photographic paper. Darkroom work was done in the SKVR BeeldFabriek – that also supplied the custom made tin can pinhole cameras.
Using a 2nd camera the process was captured for the 1 minute film “tin can pinhole photo”, with original sound and added music called ‘Sonatina Piccola’ (Jan Masséus, composer) performed by the nearby playing Nederlands Jeugd Accordeon Orkest directed by Marc Belder – during this ’24 uur cultuur’ Rotterdam event.

Papirosn – a yiddish song – played May 26th, 2012 by the klezmer music band “INEJNEM” (in English “Together”) in front of Restaurant Ester on Szeroka street in the heart of Kazimierz – the old Jewish district of Kraków (Poland).
Iryna Stefanyuk is singing – the first part in Yiddish and the second part in Russian – with Myroslav Bandrivskyy playing the clarinet, Jurij Bejchuk on guitar, and Jarosław Filipiak on contrabass. The song is also well-known as “Papirosen”. See Inejnem’s facebook for other concert info.
Story – The song “Papirosn” (in English “Cigarettes”) is about a little boy all alone trying to survive: Wet, hungry, standing in the rain on a cold, foggy, night, a little boy is standing on the corner of a street begging: Please, buy my cigarettes, buy my matches! Help an orphan, save me from hunger! With no father or mother, and after a year roaming the streets together with his little sister, she also died, and he is now all alone, trying to survive.
