A special evening of remembrance at Bialik Square and the Culture Houses
Visitors are invited to a fascinating lecture on the city’s urban history conveyed through personal stories and testimonies.
Alisa Wexler, the Tel Aviv-Yafo City Museum’s Head of Tours, will discuss memory and historical empathy, our ability to experience big events through an intimate, subjective perspective, and how this provides an emotional-cultural context. The lecture includes moving personal stories of city residents from the museum’s collection of stories.

Advance online registration, a limited number of places
The talk is 20 minutes long and is documented on the museum’s social media
