Not Because of the Memories [לא בגלל הזכרונות]

Author(s): Noya Lancet
In the middle of a Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony, a young man jumps onto the stage and asks to commemorate the occasion in a different way. He is a grandson of a survivor, and he wishes to tell the love stories that are tied with his family history, and are tightly connected with the fate of the Jews and the State of Israel. The text combines segments from poems and prose written about the Holocaust.
