After Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, many Jews found refuge in Albania. The Albanians not only protected their Jewish citizens, but also provided sanctuary to Jewish refugees. The remarkable assistance afforded to the Jews was grounded in Besa, a code of honor, which still today serves as the highest ethical code in the country. One who acts according to Besa is someone who keeps his word, someone to whom one can trust one’s life and the lives of one’s family.

Liverpool Hope University,

All Welcome!

Instead of images of lifeless victims, undaunted faces of politicians promising justice, or those of the victimisers of the Colombian armed conflict, Erika Diettes’ Memento Mori: Testament to life has chosen to portray the conflict from the victims’ point of view. The installation “Shrouds” is being exhibited in the Liverpool Cathedral as part of RISE. Come and hear the artist talking about her work and Colombian reconciliation from a unique point of view.
