 ‘Anne Frank House VR,’ an Immersive Experience that Recreates Amsterdam’s Secret Annex and Preserves a Piece of Holocaust History | Oculus | Aristides de Sousa Mendes | Scoop.it
Today marks what would have been Anne Frank’s 89th birthday. As a teenager, she dreamt of becoming a journalist or writer—and while those dreams were tragically cut short, she succeeded in her ambitions not “to have lived in vain” and “to go on living” after her death through the pages of The Diary of a Young Girl. And her legacy can reach people in a brand-new way with Anne Frank House VR, now available on Rift, Oculus Go, and Gear VR.

Portugal welcomes home Jews 500 years after the Inquisition

Portugal welcomes home Jews 500 years after the Inquisition | Aristides de Sousa Mendes | Scoop.it

Last week I became one of the first Americans — the first on the West Coast — to be granted a Portuguese passport under a new law offering citizenship to the descendants of Jews who were persecuted during that country’s Inquisition five centuries years ago. In 1989, in a remarkable public statement, President Mario Soares of Portugal apologized to Jews who had been tortured, burned at the stake or massacred by mobs, or were expelled, during the country’s horrific Inquisition period some 500 years ago. In 2013, the Portuguese...

Portugal welcomes home Jews 500 years after the Inquisition

Portugal welcomes home Jews 500 years after the Inquisition | Aristides de Sousa Mendes | Scoop.it
Last week I became one of the first Americans — the first on the West Coast — to be granted a Portuguese passport under a new law offering citizenship to the descendants of Jews who were persecuted during that country’s Inquisition five centuries years ago. In 1989, in a remarkable public statement, President Mario Soares of Portugal apologized to Jews who had been tortured, burned at the stake or massacred by mobs, or were expelled, during the country’s horrific Inquisition period some 500 years ago. In 2013, the Portuguese parliament passed legislation offering dual citizenship to those who could prove bona fide descent, calling the persecution of Jews a “stain” on Portuguese history; application procedures were finalized in 2015. [...] when the red passport finally arrived from Lisbon after two years, I never expected that America itself would be moving toward darkness and intolerance, with the Trump administration looking to ban immigrants based on their religion or national origin; deportations of people of a particular ethnicity; talk of “extreme vetting” of religious beliefs; , open discussions about a domestic Muslim registry and the slashing of the total refugee quota for 2017 by more than half — thus capping it at only 50,000. Like most American Jews, my ancestors were mainly Ashkenazic —Yiddish or German speakers from central and eastern European cities and villages who fled the threat of pogroms or conscription in the Czar’s army. Luckily for me, they reached these shores before 1921, when the xenophobic Emergency Quota Act sharply limited the influx of eastern and southern Europeans, lest they sully the national character. Thanks to the Dutch city government’s careful preservation of all vital records, I found his birth notice within 15 minutes. The signatures on their documents were the flourishes of educated people who had been traders, theologians and physicians, even the granddaughter of an astronomer who had advised explorer Vasco de Gama. [...] when the Portuguese gained control over the Brazilian colonies and brought over their Inquisition, the Jews fled north, founding the two oldest Jewish communities in the United States — in New Amsterdam and tolerant Newport, R.I. In 1790, when George Washington was visiting Newport, the Jewish community’s leader, Moses Seixas, delivered a public letter to Washington, expressing hope that the young country would accord respect and tolerance to all of its citizens, regardless of their background and religious beliefs. While surfing the Internet at home in Portland, Ore., I stumbled across the astonishing news that Portugal was offering passports to those who could prove Portuguese Sephardic ancestry via names, customs or lineage. President Trump’s xenophobic policies and pronouncements have encouraged those who harbor the least tolerance, bringing predictable, miserable results: fires at mosques in Texas, Washington and Florida; widespread fear among Latinos that their families might be torn apart; bomb threats at Jewish community centers; refugees who had sought sanctuary here from persecution now fleeing to Canada in the dead of night.
