Ilya Altman delivered a lecture on “Holocaust on the territory of the USSR – history and memoralization” for volunteers from the German organization ASF (Action Reconciliation Service for peace) working in different Israeli towns. He paid particular attention to the fate of the German Jews having been deported to a ghetto on the Soviet territory and to common actions of remembrance with German students in Russia
The lecture was held in a historic building, "Bet Yehudah," which houses the Israeli office of ASF and where for many years lived the family of a famous educator who revived the Hebrew language. More than 40 German students attended the lecture with great interest putting many questions. Ilya Altman invited his listeners to make use of the remembrance of the Holocaust survivors and to participate in international competitions on the subject.
