House of Tolerance

Nov 13 - Nov 21

Organised by the Ljubljana Jewish Cultural Centre and Mini Teater, the 9th House of Tolerance festival will feature more than 20 films, two exhibitions and several other events discussing topics such as human rights, tolerance, the Holocaust and topical issues.

The opening ceremony will include a screening of Liebe Angst, a documentary in which Sandra Prechtel talks about a mother-daughter relationship that is shaped by a traumatic experience of the Holocaust. Prechtel will also be present at the screening herself.

A part of the festival is aimed at school students. They will be shown the films Where Is Anne Frank, Letter to a Pig and My Father's War, followed by discussions on the Holocaust, human rights and tolerance.

Visitors are also invited to an exhibition titled Anne Frank - a History for Today, and the permanent exhibition the Holocaust in Ljubljana.

Chansonnier Vita Mavrič and the Quartet Akord will give a concert of Jewish Klezmer chansons.

All the events are admission-free. For details, click here.
