Iaşi, 2009 DVD 1:48 (video-still)

    The video was filmed in the basement of the former Police station where the Iași Pogrom took place.


- An extract from “The Book of the Bucharest Abattoir” – a history of the abattoir from its foundation in 1872 until the 50s. During the Bucharest Pogrom, 13 Jews were hanged on the hooks in the abattoir after being tortured and murdered. Above their heads was placed an inscription – “kosher meat” – referring to the Jewish regulations to slaughter animals. This episode, noted by historians, is denied by some of the people who are currently working there. The chapter presents the methods used to slaughter animals, most probably before the war.
