"Memento" to be shown at the special program honouring Zoltán Szilágyi
The "Memento" short clip, which was created for ENRS to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, will be shown at a special programme honouring animation artist Zoltán Szilágyi. The one-day event will be held on 7 December (Saturday) at the Urania National Film Theatre in Budapest.
Zoltán Szilágyi is a renowned Hungarian graphic artist and animation director. For his work he has received numerous awards, including the Béla Balázs Prize. In 2016, he created “Memento” – a short animated clip commemorating the International Holocaust Remembrance Day which was used as a part of an educational campaign carried out by the ENRS and House of the Wannsee Conference. The half-a-minute-long spot evokes symbols which are easily recognised by Europeans in connection with the Holocaust: cattle railway cars, railway tracks, paper snippets or abandoned flats. However, it depicts them from a child’s perspective.Learn more about the International Holocaust Remembrance Day
