Sound in the Silence

Seven IAS students are currently participating in the second edition of the educational project “Sound in the Silence”. Together with other high school students from Austria, Lithuania and Romania they have visited Mauthausen Memorial / KZ-Gedenkstätte in Austria. Students are finding their way to turn the uneasy and complex history into art. The day after the guided tour of the former Mauthausen concentration camp, they took part in Gusen audio walk. It starts at the Gusen museum, at the site of the former crematorium, and leads you through the remnants of the former Gusen I and Gusen II concentration camps before taking you over the former SS railway, through the St. Georgen woods, and ends at the doors of the “Bergkristall”, the underground armaments plant and tunnel system that was a death camp for Gusen II prisoners. While you walk, you listen to the voices of survivors, former guards, and people who lived in the area. The website for the audio walk says that it is ‘comparable to a journey in a time machine, forcing the visitors to find themselves in a reflection of the horrible past that dominated this lovely landscape…’ Over the last couple of days, the students are also taking part in activities and workshops carried out by artists and moderators: rapper and producer Dan Wolf (USA), choreographer Katarina Rampackova (Slovakia), performer Sean Palmer (UK) and facilitator Tetiana Kriukovska (Ukraine). The effect of their work will be presented at the final performance at the House of Remembrance in Gusen on 15 October at 6 p.m. The project is delivered by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity and Gusen and Mauthausen Memorials with the support of Bewusstseinsregion – House of Remembrance and Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Austria.

12th Grade Integration Trip

Following what has become an annual tradition, Ms. Iza and the 12th Graders visited Cuban band leader and chef extraordinaire, Rey Ceballo. Rey and his wife Ania, welcomed us at their home, Casa Azul, in Piaseczno. We got straight to work, preparing Cuban rice, beans, chimi-churi, fried aubergine, baked chicken, pumpkin, and tamale. While everything was cooking, we assembled in the living room, forming a band and played some Cuban music with Rey. We took a break when the food was ready and the room fell silent, as everyone ate. “A good sign”, said Rey with a smile. For dessert, Rey whipped up his famous flan de Cuba and after that sweet delicacy, everyone was properly fed and happy. Later, some of us played some more music with Rey and had a dance party, while others regained their strength from the smorgasbord they had just devoured. The day started out gloomy and cold, but as the day progressed the sun made an appearance to make our Cuban Culinary Workshop even more authentic. Thanks to everyone who came! It was a great day!
