Aan dit werk in de vorm van een bladzijde uit de Talmoed werkte ik vanaf januari 2022. Het was bedoeld voor de Arti-tentoonstelling: “U zult begrijpen dat . . . De keuzes van Arti et Amicitiae in en na WO2”. Het werk werd door Arti op 25 juli geweigerd. Het is nu te zien in het JOMA. Alle afbeeldingen zijn afkomstig van het internet (dd. juli 2022), behalve de foto van Mommie Schwarz; die afkomstig is uit [4] p.173.

Maarten van der Heijden:

          My name is Maarten van der Heijden and I am Jewish. I was born in 1947. Just after the war. I belong to the so called Jewish second-generation. My grandfather Martin Spanjaard, a musical conductor, was murdered in Auschwitz.
           I always knew that I was Jewish, but I did not do anything with that. During a midlife crisis I made a quest into my Jewish roots and Judaism. And what did I find? On the one hand the beauty of the Talmud and Jewish mysticism. On the other hand the horror of the Shoah.
