Meeting with Tal Gur in Prienai Public Library

Jolita Staciokaite

Today we had an emotional and exciting meeting with Tal Gur and his parents Rachel and Mel Gur. The meeting was in Prienai Public library. Tal presented his performance "Mind Crossing" based on the real life story of his maternal grandparents. Rachel's mother and father are from Lithuania, during the Holocaust they were sent to Kaunas ghetto and then to different concentrationcamps. Despite very tragic losses they managed to reunate and start their family life anew in the state of Israel. Tal is an artist and a music therapist and he tells the story of his family combining different art forms - documentary, music, dance, poetry. Art is a powerful  tool to convey human suffering and lead to compassion.
