An international conference entitled "The End of 1942: a Turning Point in World War II and in the Understanding of the 'Final Solution of the Jewish Question'” was held from December 17-20 at Yad Vashem, in cooperation with the Ben Zvi Institute for the Study of Jewish Communities of the East. The conference was dedicated to the events of 70 years ago: the Battle of Stalingrad and the victory of the Anglo-American forces in the Battle of Africa.

Dr. Feferman represented the Holocaust Center with a lecture called "Keeping Stalingrad in Mind? - Fluctuations of German Judenpolitik in the North Caucasus, 22 November – 31 December, 1942." Dr. Feferman illustrated his statements on the occupational policy toward the Mountain Jews with documents, such as propaganda material from the Wehrmacht and German administration. The lecture was attended, among others, by Prof. Mordechai Altshuler, expert on the history of Russian Jews, as well as by Dr. Feferman’s former academic supervisor, Itzhak Kuvent, who runs the compensation project for the surviving Mountain Jews, and David Yadud, the leading lawyer of this project. Mr. Kuvent emphasized that the research and activities of Dr. Feferman contributed substantially to both the restoration of historical justice and the recognition of the Mountain Jews by the Israeli courts, in particular the inmates Nalchik ghetto who survived the Holocaust.

29 November 2012

Alla Gerber's new book was presented by O. Libkin, Director of the publishing house “Text,” critic Lev Anninsky, author of the foreword, and Ilya Altman.

Lev Anninsky stated "... Readers know Alla Gerber by her astute articles, interviews, and presence on radio and TV. Her social temperament is widely known both in her public appearances and in politics. Where is the source of this energy? Alla Gerber's persistent demonstrative, and sometimes challenging, love for life; … a premonition of upcoming troubles which a human being has to be prepared to meet and to sustain at every moment. … 'You cannot choose the time you live in' said the poet, and an unknown wise man, who lived centuries before the poet, taught his people not to be surprised by anything bad but rather to enjoy everything which is good ... "

Libkin, said: "Alla Gerber wrote a wonderful book of memories - for her friends and relatives. But her story seems to be familiar to many people, both known and unknown. The book includes the story of her parents, "Mom and Dad," as well as documents from the case of her father (who had to go through the camp and came back "to live"). It also includes "Recognition" (notes on the book "Sunflower" by Simon Wiesenthal)." Alla Gerber's bright and colorful performance caused a vivid echo and interest, which resulted in a host of questions and autographed book requests.
