first_imgBy Tedi Pascarella |MIDDLETOWN – Remembering the past is often the only way to ensure a better present and future. In its 38th year – and fifth as a nonprofit organization – the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights, & Genocide Education (Chhange) on the Brookdale Community College campus takes a necessary approach to remembering the past in order to forge a connection for visitors and local students.“Anne Frank: A History for Today,” an international exhibit created by the Anne Frank House and Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect can be seen through June 1. Anne Frank’s famous diary, which documented her life in hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II, is the basis of several plays and films.Alongside the exhibit, an art installation, “Through Their Eyes,” displays works from local schools around Monmouth County. Dale Daniels of Holmdel, executive director of Chhange, acknowledges the importance of working with local students, as she explained, “We teach the human story – what happens to individuals. This helps the kids see, ‘Well, what does that mean for all of us, and what can I do now?’ ”“Through Their Eyes” will be on display until June 29.Chhange develops 50 to 75 programs a year for the community. Each event targets a specific subject and thematic focus. Groups of educators attend a workshop in January and their students go on to complete the art ready for installation by the first week of March. “Through Their Eyes” works seamlessly with “Anne Frank: A History for Today,” as both draw parallels to the experiences of refugees then and now. “For spring, we wanted to emphasize what is happening in our world,” said Daniels, “because today’s refugee crisis is the largest since World War II.”Student artist Madison Miller, artist and Holocaust survivor Claire Boren, and artist and teacher Arlene Smelson. Photos courtesy ChhangeCreative programs are developed for all ages, as the center not only educates about the Holocaust, human rights, and genocide, but actively engages with the community. Walking through the doors of Chhange, visitors first get the opportunity to see the students’ work, many of whom visually linked similarities facing refugees during the Holocaust to those involved in today’s crisis. Visitors can then experience “Anne Frank: A History for Today.”The exhibit begins with a 20-minute film on the background of Anne Frank within the context of history during her short life. The tours are both self-guided and docent-guided Monday through Thursday by reservation as well as 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday, May 21. Each exhibit panel offers a timeline of Anne’s life, including quotes from her diary. The second part of the story focuses on the theme of hiding – specifically hiding in plain sight – escape, and life as a refugee.Suzi Bloom, retired special education teacher in Rumson, is one of several members of the community who generously provided artifacts featured in the exhibit. Bloom’s mother, Ruth Halpern, originally from Vienna, Austria, traveled with her family to the same neighborhood of Amsterdam as Anne Frank’s family to seek a safe place. “Living in Amsterdam, things were getting bad like everywhere else,” said Bloom. “In order to get a visa, my family had to be seen by a doctor for a vision test. The Nazis wrote letters to doctors demanding they not pass Jews, but the doctor passed them anyway.”The Halpern family traveled from Europe to Hoboken on the Pennland, a Dutch ship that carried refugees to the United States, then settled in Red Bank. Halpern, in an essay written during her time at Red Bank High School, “In the Mirror of Remembrance,” recalls her experience immigrating to the United States.Through this powerful exhibit, Chhange aims to make connections between the immigrants then and now and their importance in the community. Chhange, a trailblazer in advocacy and a collaborator with the Association of Holocaust Organizations, will be unveiling a permanent exhibit, “Journeys Beyond Genocide” on Oct. 22, featuring four phases: life before, build up to tensions, genocide, and afterwards, as survivors create successful lives for themselves despite adversity. Redefining the term survivor is another facet of this exhibit, as it is not just limited to concentration camp survivors but extends to those in hiding and those seeking asylum as refugees. “These are people who moved to our community,” said Daniels, “Their stories are here. We see them as people before they become victims.”This article was first published in the May 18-25, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

first_imgMay 1968 is not one more month in the history of France. It was the students who started the revolts, but this discontent was gradually joined by all sectors of society. Each group had its own objective of the protest and football set its sights on the French Football Federation (FFF).The former madridista gave a good account of this discomfort among the footballers Raymond Kopa, in 1963. On July 4 of that year he published an article in the France Dimanche demanding minimum rights for footballers. It was not the first time that the greatest players had fought for all their teammates. Two years earlier, the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) had been created with Just Fontaine or Eugen N’Jo Lea at the head, top-level players. The title of Kopa’s writing, Players are slaves, already hinted at the intensity of his words: “Today, in the middle of the 20th century, the professional soccer player is the only human being who can be sold and bought without having his opinion”. This message made a huge impact and was a great inspiration for what would be unleashed in ’68.On May 22, just over a month after the first protest of this time, soccer raised its voice. Amateur level footballers, some Red Star professionals and, especially, journalists from the Miroir du Football, a magazine close to the French Communist Party and the movement that was taking place in Paris, took over the headquarters of the FFF at number 60 bis, a facade through which all tourists who want to go from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower pass. , or vice versa, by the straightest line possible. To the literary phrases “let’s be realistic, ask for the impossible” or “forbidden to prohibit” that served as a slogan that spring, sport contributed the phrase “Soccer for footballers”, which shouted a banner hanging from balcony to balcony on the first floor and which Platini had as leitmotiv during his UEFA presidency. Far from the level of tension and violence that existed on other fronts of the city, that was a peaceful occupation. Pierre Delaunay, secretary general, and George Boulogne, national instructor, were locked in a room. Apart from the aforementioned banner, the phrase was also hung “The Federation, owned by 600,000 footballers” on the second floor. Meanwhile, at street level, leaflets of the Soccer Players Action Committee Program were distributed with the demands.“Like the workers occupy their factories. Like the students occupy their Faculties. Why? To give back to the 600,000 French soccer players and their millions of friends what belongs to them: soccer, which the Federation pontiffs have expropriated to serve their selfish interests to obtain economic benefit “. Then five main points of its manifestation were listed. One of the most important was 3, in which License B was denounced. This rule forced footballers to be linked to the club with which they signed their first professional contract until the age of 35 in appalling conditions, sometimes with a salary below the minimum. Something unimaginable in 2020.In point 5, and in relation to what was described in the previous paragraph, Kopa’s words were mentioned years ago: “(The Federation) mocks the human dignity of the professionals by maintaining the slave contracts denounced by Kopa and whose illegality was recognized, a year ago, by Sadoul”. The latter was the president of the League.The Federation takeover ended when the Grenelle Accords were signed, for which the minimum wage was raised by 35%. Soccer also made great strides and the hated License B was canceled. Cruyff or Bosman would fight years later in the same line of defense of the rights of soccer players.last_img read more

first_imgThe Centre has not yet cleared the proposal of the West Bengal government to change the name of the State to ‘Bangla’, Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai said in a written response in the Rajya Sabha to a question from MP Ritabrata Banerjee on Wednesday.“No, sir,” he said adding that changing a State’s name requires constitutional amendment and it is done after taking into consideration all relevant factors.On July 26 last year, the West Bengal Assembly had passed a resolution unanimously to change the name in the three most-spoken languages — Bengali, Hindi and English — and had sent the proposal to the Home Ministry. It suggested ‘Paschimbanga’ in 2011 but it was turned down by the Central government.In 2016, it proposed ‘Bengal’ in English, ‘Bangla’ in Bengali and ‘Bangal’ in Hindi, which was also turned down. Finally, it proposed ‘Bangla’ last year.The Ministry of External Affairs objected to the proposals suggesting ‘Bangla’ had similarity to Bangladesh and it would be difficult to differentiate the two at international forums. Describing the re-naming to be in consonance with the history, culture and identity of the State, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to bring an amendment for the same in the current session of Parliament. She said the Chief Secretary of the State had communicated this position to the Union Home Secretary on August 21, 2018. (With inputs from Kolkata)last_img read more

Follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Basel: Stan Wawrinka was forced to withdraw from Friday’s Basel quarter-final showdown against best friend Roger Federer with a back injury, just an hour after struggling past America’s Frances Tiafoe in a gruelling second-round clash.”The bad news is that I will have to retire,” the 34-year-old three-time Grand Slam winner said after his 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 win. “I had some trouble with my back in the last game. I’m sure I cannot make it for tomorrow (Friday). I will pull out.”Top seed Federer, chasing a 10th title at his hometown event, will receive a walkover into Saturday’s semi-finals.It would have been the 27th meeting between the two Swiss teammates and Federer would have been the comfortable favourite boasting a 23-3 record over their 14-year rivalry.Wawrinka stands in provisional 14th place in the points race to the year-end ATP Finals and his chances of qualifying now look slim with just next week’s Paris Masters to play on the regular schedule.The struggle against Tiafoe, which lasted for two and a half hours and was decided by an 11-minute concluding game, had put Wawrinka into his fifth quarter-final at the Swiss tournament.”I was fighting well, he was playing well, I expected a tough match,” Wawrinka said.Wawrinka hammered 14 aces — his last two in the penultimate game.Tiafoe saved a Wawrinka match point with an ace of his own in the final game before the home favourite got the crowd on its feet with a backhand winner down the line to seal the success.Both players hugged at the net, with Tiafoe receiving a standing ovation from the 9,000-strong crowd.Stefanos Tsitsipas reached his 13th quarter-final of the year when he came back to claim a 6-7 (4/7), 6-2, 6-4 win over Lithuanian qualifier Ricardas Berankis.The Greek third seed will next face Serb Filip Krajinovic who upset fifth seed Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-4.Tsitsipas said he didn’t panic after losing the opening set to his 70th-ranked opponent in 52 minutes.”He was giving me a hard time in the first set, it was not easy to overcome, we had a high-quality match,” said Tsitsipas, the world number seven.”I managed to remain calm and not rush too much.”The ATP Finals’ hopes of David Goffin stalled as the sixth seed lost to Reilly Opelka 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/4), 7-5, with the young American sending down 29 aces in two and a half hours.Goffin stands provisional tenth in the race to the eight-man season wrap-up with a final points-earning chance next week in Paris.Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Federer, Daniil Medvedev, Dominic Thiem and Tsitsipas have already booked their places in the ATP Finals, leaving just two places available.Roberto Bautista Agut, who sits one spot away from a London invitation, stayed in the chase as he defeated France’s Richard Gasquet 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 and will next play Opelka.The Spaniard claimed his 40th victory of the season as he works to become a first-time qualifier into the season showpiece in London which starts on November 10. last_img read more

He’s a wing-back and usually prefers to play on the right, but can play on the left. He is ready. You’ll see, very soon, his performance.”For Davide it’s a great chance. He arrives in a great club. It’s important to go into this club with the right mentality. It’s not easy to play for a great club, above all when, previously, you didn’t.”But don’t forget Torino are a good team with a great history, in the past. I know that, also, in Turin there is good pressure. But to play in another country, another type of football, it’s not easy for him.”Conte expects Zappacosta to have few problems adapting to his tactics, having coached the full-back at international level.”Davide Zappacosta played the game against Israel with the national team [on Tuesday] and showed he’s in good physical condition,” he said. “He worked with me in the national team. He knows very well which is my style of football, which is my idea. “For this reason, it’s more simple for him to adapt himself to our style of football.”last_img read more
