As I was passing by the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art / I noticed / out of the corner of my eye / the title of a new exhibition / "…And Europe Will Be Stunned…" / on the museum wall. / It was the work / by the Israeli artist / Yael Bartana / who represented Poland at the Venice Biennale. / It consisted of a video trilogy / "Nightmare" / "Wall and Tower" / "Assassination" / and a manifesto / by a Polish group called / the "Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland" / demanding the return to Poland / of 3,300,000 Polish Jews / most of whom were murdered in the Holocaust. / I brought home a copy of the manifesto / for Roni / whose family was originally from Poland. /
