You might be interested to read this article about Adrian Tamburini’s mission in performing the Babi Yar Symphony.
You might also be interested in listening to Rachael Kohn interviewing Elena Gorodestki, a feisty 82 year old survivor of Babi Yar, the only survivor of that massacre left in Melbourne. The interview goes on with a bit from me and then Adrian Tamburini talks about the Symphony. You can listen on line or at 6 pm on Sunday on Radio National and it will be repeated at 1 pm on Wednesday. (For the insomniacs amongst you, it will also be broadcast at 3 am on Wednesday.)
And watch out for The Age - theage.com.au on Sunday. There will be a large article about Elena and the concert in the main part of The Age – I think the Extra.

Над Бабьим Яром памятников нет.
Крутой обрыв, как грубое надгробье.
Мне сегодня столько лет,
как самому еврейскому народу..."
