How can one revive the memory of someone who is no longer with us in physical form, in a suitably respectful, evocative and emotive manner? Thus moots the Beit Avi Chai blurb about the forthcoming Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism event, which takes place at the Jerusalem institution on Tuesday, at 9:30 p.m.The “A Face. The Day. A Memorial” artistic venture, now overseen by Yotvat Feiereisen-Weil, started out seven years ago, the idea being to create animation films about victims of Israel’s wars and of acts of hostility committed here. To that end a bunch of young animators were recruited, and they met up with members of families who lost a loved one, either on the battlefield or as the result of a terrorist attack.
