The iDSB in Europe’s oldest Jewish radio station
On 9 June 2023, two students from the iDSB were invited to take part in an interview with Mrs Aviva Abelew and two other students from Elsene on Europe’s oldest Jewish radio station, Radio Judaica.
These young people, together with many other students from Belgium, were able to go on a deeply moving study trip to Lyon and Izieu at the end of April, with the support of the German Embassy, and were able to reflect on it and give their impressions live on the programme Découvertes on Friday 9 June:
Kasper: We were interviewed on Radio Judaica with 2 students who were with us in Izieu. We were asked what we did there, but also if we learned much about the Shoah or how we as Germans relate to this tragic event. It was a very good experience to be live on the radio and I am very happy that we were so well received.
Ariane: Once we arrived at the radio, Kasper and I were taken with two other students from Elsene to a room where the broadcasts are recorded. At first we were impressed, but we quickly got used to the atmosphere and had a particularly interesting discussion with Ms Abelew. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this project and thank Radio Judaica for their hospitality.
