HercloviIn the Jerusalem Post’s column “opinion“ Michael Freund recently published his outspoken article in which he endeavors to fulfill the last will and testament of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern State of Israel. Although the State of Israel has long ago fulfilled Theodor Herzl’s last wish, Freund, led by his, above all obsessive desire to rebury the human remains of Theodor’s paternal grandfather and grandmother errs in his reading of Theodor’s will, part of which we state in our heading. From Herzl’s last wish it is absolutely clear that he made no mention of either his paternal or maternal grandparents. So why is Freund so intent on transferring the last remains of grandfather Simon and grandmother Rivka to Israel in order to bury them next to their grandchild? Why does he make reference to the “last will and testament” when he is perfectly aware that there is no mention nor request that Herzl’s grandparents from either side of the family be buried beside him or he beside them, whichever way one looks at it...

OUR PROJECT

The project “A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION ABOUT GOOD PEOPLE” is prepared to arouse the awareness of the young generation, especially of future public leaders to the truth of the Holocaust, particularly the Holocaust in Serbia and Ex Yugoslavia. During the Balkan wars and the nineties of the last century the question of the Holocaust and the desolation of Jews was vulgarly simplified and then directly used by regime for pro nationalistic propaganda. The project will open a public debate on the Holocaust. This exhibition, initiated by the Jewish Community in Zemun, and upheld by many communities in the new founded states is an attempt to promote mutual open-mindedness among all the nationalities from the territory of former Yugoslavia. Work on such projects promotes mutual respect between people, in our case, between Jews and all citizens of former Yugoslavia. The exhibition has so far presented in the following cities: Zemun – Serbia, Budva – Montenegro, Zagreb & Osijek – Croatia, Novi Sad – Serbia and Jerusalem, Knesset – Israel.

Dear friends all around the World,

Milan Fogel, resident of Israel, wrote a book, collection of literary humoresques, entitled „Return to the Response“. In his own way Milan tried to depict the reality of life, at times pleasing for the participants in the events, while at others fairly unfavorable. Looking for personal literary recognition, with this collection of short stories, touching on the humoresque side of Jew’s life in Israel, Milan took part in the last competition of the Union of Jewish Municipalities of Yugoslavia. Milan does not take any responsibility for the breakup of Yugoslavia that followed! The jury unanimously decided to award the first prize to his collection.
This is Milan’s first book published in English.
