2019: The World of Grażyna Bacewicz — Bard Music West. Rare early Soviet-era illustrations of ‘Chad Gadya’ seder song at Magnes. An upcoming exhibit at the Magnes museum in Berkeley brings to light a fascinating yet little-known slice of modern European Jewish history.

Rare early Soviet-era illustrations of ‘Chad Gadya’ seder song at Magnes

“El Lissitzky’s Chad Gadyo at 100” focuses on a recent gift to the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at UC Berkeley: a complete set of 11 colorful lithographic images by El Lissitzky, a Russian Jewish avant-garde artist born Eleazar Markovich Lisitskii in 1890. The works illustrate the popular Passover seder song that starts off, “One little goat, one little goat, which my father bought for two zuzim.”

The exhibit opens Tuesday, Aug. 27 and will be on display through May 29, 2020. A show highlighting the song, perhaps better known in modern times as “Chad Gadya,” is significant, says Magnes curator Francesco Spagnolo, if for no other reason than that these El Lissitzky illustrations are quite rare. “It was a time of great hope for many Jews,” he adds. “El Lissitzky’s Chad Gadyo at 100” Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. INTERNATIONAL DEBATES ON HUMAN RIGHTS HOSTED BY ‘NEVER AGAIN’ AT POL’AND’ROCK FESTIVAL - "NEVER AGAIN" ASSOCIATION.

The biggest open-air free music festival in Europe, Pol’and’Rock, also known as Polish Woodstock, took place from 1 to 4 August 2019.


The ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association organized a series of anti-racism activities accompanying the festival. The festival line up included internationally known performers who oppose racism and discrimination such as Gogol Bordello, Skunk Anansie, Ziggy Marley, and Prophets of Rage. The last band includes former members of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill. The festival stand of the ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association was the venue of a debate with Nay San Lwin, a human rights activist and representative of the persecuted minority of Rohingya in Myanmar (Burma). For years he has been drawing the attention of world public opinion to the genocidal practices used by the military dictatorship against the Rohingya, such as violence, hunger and forced evictions.
