DER TAG, AN DEM DEUTSCHLAND UNTERGING

Nach mehreren Anschlägen in den letzten 5 Jahren im gesamten Bundesgebiet, von Schleswig-Holstein bis Bayern, verursacht durch Raketeneinschläge und Autobomben, erhält ein Deutscher Geheimdienst mit dem Kürzel “Ω” die Gelegenheit, den Urheber durch einen gezielten Luftschlag “auszuschalten”. Der Dienst schlägt hart und präzise zu. Kurz darauf schlagen am Nordufer des Bodensees nahe der Stadt Konstanz die ersten Raketen ein. Noch ist niemand verletzt, aber der Sachschaden beträchtlich.

Im Laufe des Tages erweitert sich der Radius der Einschläge – in Freiburg werden Teile der Altstadt zerstört, in Baden-Baden fällt das Festspielhaus durch einen Volltreffer in sich zusammen. Es gibt die ersten Toten zu beklagen. In den Außenbezirken von Karlsruhe und Stuttgart herrscht Chaos, nachdem mehrere Einfamilienhäuser von Raketen ausradiert wurden. Ein Kindergarten geht in Flammen auf, mehrere 3-6 jährige Kinder sterben noch am Ort des Geschehens.

To Oma & Bella

Last year my australian cousin called me really overwhelmed! She just had seen the documentary Oma & Bella in Melbourne thanks to the Jewish International Film Festival.

“It’s awsome! she told me! This two ladies rocks! So vivid and full of life! You would love it she concluded. Yes me and my cousin we share a passion for food and specially eastern jewish recipies! When i last visited her, I learnt a lot watching her cooking even though she will argue she was not…

So i made some research. Who are Oma & Bella?

The 80 something Oma & Bella are two friends and there are living together in their appartment in Berlin for more than five years. One is from Poland, the other from Vilnus. They go to the market together and cook as it used to be in their home before the war, with passion, without recipies or graduation measures…!!!!

Oma’s granddaughter Alexa decided to make a movie and to catch these instants of life, humour, cooking and above all friendship.

 

During the war, Oma went to camp, and Bella escaped from the Vilnus ghetto. They lost everything and instead of flying away as many after the war, they stayed in Berlin because it was their home…

In the past two years, Oma & Bella ‘s story travelled to New York, Beirut, Melbourne, Sydney, Tel Aviv… A cook book is now available written both in German and English. Last month the movie won the Grimme Price in Berlin!

Today, i’m sorry to tell you that Bella passed away… She will be forever in our hearts.

 

 

Bella taught me what it means to love, to be a friend and to stand by what you believe, no matter the consequences. She will be so missed and forever remembered. Please send all your love and strength to my grandmother. And please, if you see her around the streets of Charlottenburg, always say hello.Thank you.” Said Alexa Oma’s granddaughter.

Lomir tanzn, lomir singen, lomir lachn with Oma & Bella forever! Lchaim!!!!! To life!

Je chante la France

Dear France,

I’m sad tonight.

I shouldn’t. My country is going mad.

It has been like that for some times now.

I’m sad tonight.

There was a protest march today in Paris and words were said against Jews, words from another century.

They don’t hide anymore.

Did they ever? Or was I depth? Or blind? Or both?

You can go to a diner party nowadays and hear regular folks defending the worst abomination and saying “can’t we laugh anymore?”

Why Yiddish today????!!!!

To my dear cousin from my America,

I can’t focus on my yiddish exercices tonight, too tired… but listening to Isaac Bashevis Singer’s Yiddish speech in Stockholm (1978) makes me feel so good!

But who is Ita Malka?

Once upon a time in a beautiful orange kitchen from the early 80′s, were sitting a grandma and her little daughter. The little girl didn’t want to eat. She claimed for a story instead. Please tell me the one when you cross the demarcation line. You have to know that the little girl knew the story by heart. But it did not matter it was a really good story. So says the gradma: “i had to take off my yellow david star from my coat when i was on this train taking me to Vierzon. Then I met the lady that helped me cross over the line. It was a dark night and the german soldiers were up on the bridge. We had to be careful and quiet because each moves could cost both our lives. But what happened, asked the little girl? We managed it and when i was on the other side of the bridge i cried , i couldn’t stop.
But where were you going to? the little girl asked. To Avignon, into the  free zone to meet your great great grand father who had managed the journey. And then I met your grand father, I fell in love with him and I could eat jams a lot thanks to his mum. Is that what love means? Eating jams? asked the little girl. The grand mother laughed and said ” you know we had nothing to eat at this time so everything was good”.
But where was your mum? the little girl asked. Why were you on her own at 18 dealing with such “tsoures” (problems in yiddish).
Finish your dish answered the grandma . I tell you later the story of Ita Malka, your great great grand mother.
Ita Malka means  little queen in yiddish .

Yom Kippur mit Bushido

Es gibt so Momente, da ist einem alles klar. Zum Beispiel wenn die USA eine Woche nach der NSA-Prism-Aufdeckung eine Terrorwahrnehmung rausgibt oder wenn Bushido einen Integrationsbambi bekommt. Dann bedauert man, dass man Spengler’s “Untergang des Abendlandes” doch nicht zu Ende gelesen hat.

Als Bushido dann mit Shindy “Stress ohne Grund” rausgebracht hat und kurz danach die Meldung kam, dass er bald ein Buch veroeffentlicht, dann ist mein innerer Snowden auf meinem inneren Moskauer Flughafen erstmal richtig kacken gegangen. Nur eine Sache passte nicht ganz – Marcus Staiger sollte der co-Autor sein. Staiger fuehrt einen interessanten Blog und hat sich in der Vergangenheit an Themen rangetraut, die viele sonst meiden, wie zb. Antisemitismus im HipHop. Wie ging das zusammen? Wenn mir eine Sache auf den Sack geht, dann sind das Leute, die meinen, man muesste nur foerdern und nie fordern, also alles immer tolerieren um alle immer genau da abzuholen, wo sie gerade sind, ohne dasselbe auch vom Gegenueber zu erwarten. Dieses Motiv vermutete ich auch hinter dieser Kooperation. Also fragte ich bei Staiger nach, ob er er wirklich nicht die Problematik in Sachen Bushido und Integration erkenne. Nach einer kurzen FB-Diskussion zeigte sich dieser aeusserst optimistisch, dass sich meine Meinung NACH der Lektuere aendern koennte.
Das Buch wurde nun am 11.September (wow, understatement) veroeffentlicht und wie erwartet incl. einem ganzen Kapitelchen ueber Israel und Juden. Allerdings war es in der Tat kein reines hater-Kapitel, sondern teilweise uebberaschend vielschichtig. Deshalb erfolgt nun meine Analyse ebenfalls zuerst mit den positiven und erst danach mit den weniger erfreulichen Aspekten.  READ MORE

The Continuing Mystery of Bruno Schulz

The great writer and mystifier Bruno Schulz left a plethora of puzzles, myths and hidden chambers in two thin booklets of essays. However, one of his lesser-known and most challenging riddles was forgotten under a thick layer of paint in one of the former villas of Drohobych.

Bruno Schulz has emerged as one of the most important writers and innovators of the Polish language in the 20th century, his works translated into 39 languages. He was born in 1892 in the then Austrian (later Polish and now Ukrainian) town of Drohobych to Jakub Schulz, a Jewish cloth merchant. The provincial oil town on the outskirts of Poland and the fading visionary image of his sick father later became the key characters of his magical metaphorical prose. Apart from being a writer and a painter, Schulz was earning his living as a school teacher.
