Holocaust-Gedenktag

„Berlin ist noch immer kein normaler Ort“

Zum internationalen Holocaust-Gedenktag am heutigen Montag spricht der israelische Botschafter Hadas-Handelsman über das unterschiedliche Erinnern in verschiedenen Ländern und das Leben in Berlin.

Der Botschafter achtet darauf, was im Alltag funktioniert. Als er zum Interview empfängt, steht er auf einer der verschachtelten Treppen in der Israelischen Botschaft. Er liebe diese Architektur, sagt Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, weil man sich wohlfühle. Dagegen sei das Ministerium in Jerusalem ungemütlich, zu sehr am Reißbrett geplant. Es erinnere ihn an die Werbung für ein Auto, auf der stehe: „Beschleunigt in 2,3 Sekunden von Null auf 100“. Aber dann, sagt er, lese man klein gedruckt daneben: „Beschleunigung unter Laborbedingungen getestet.“ An dieser Stelle muss er lächeln. Dabei geht es eigentlich um ein ernstes Thema: Heute ist internationaler Holocaust-Gedenktag.
