Gestures of Resistance

film projection, discussion — 27.1.2024 17:00

Gestures of Resistance, by Olga Ștefan, connects the personal testimonies of some of the last survivors of the Holocaust from Romania, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia through their presentations of antifascist resistance.
Gestures of Resistance weaves filmed footage from protest movements and individual acts of solidarity today, with filmed testimonies of our protagonists, archival material, and artworks depicting antifascist resistance, to plead for a path that reshapes our present and future into one governed by equality and justice for all, and asks us to resist the closure of our societies now before it’s too late.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, observed annually on January 27th, commemorates the victims of Nazi atrocities during World War II, coinciding with the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945 by Soviet forces. On this day, global communities reflect on the horrors of the Holocaust and honor the memory of those who suffered and perished during this dark period of history.
