Caption transcript for Beauty For Ashes: “The Heart” (5/9)

  • 00:01 On today's program of Zola Levitt Presents
  • 00:04 we'll take you again to Auschwitz
  • 00:06 and you'll see the depths of depravity.
  • 00:08 We'll also take you to Israel
  • 00:11 and the heights of humanity.
  • 00:13 Stay with us.
  • 00:36 ISAIAH 61:3 "I will console those who mourn in Zion,"
  • 00:40 ISAIAH 61:3 "to give them beauty for ashes,"
  • 00:44 ISAIAH 61:3 "the oil of joy for mourning,"
  • 00:48 ISAIAH 61:3 "the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness,"
  • 00:52 ISAIAH 61:3 "that they might be called oaks of righteousness,"
  • 00:55 ISAIAH 61:3 "the planting of Adonai, that He may be glorified."
  • 01:05 Shalom, Havarim
  • 01:06 Welcome Friends I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:08 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:09 Welcome to our series Beauty for Ashes.
  • 01:12 In this series we take you to
  • 01:14 the horror of the Holocaust.
  • 01:16 And then, we also show you
  • 01:17 the hope, which is Israel.
  • 01:19 It is so applicable that they even have
  • 01:22 their national anthem is Hatikva , "The Hope".
  • 01:25 Yes, a question that has to come to mind
  • 01:28 and certainly came to the minds of
  • 01:30 those that went through this is
  • 01:31 Where was God?
  • 01:33 Were we abandoned?
  • 01:34 Did God forget us?
  • 01:35 Did He forsake us?
  • 01:36 And that was a natural question
  • 01:38 that many people asked and still
  • 01:40 ask about that time period.
  • 01:42 So in this program that you're about to see,
  • 01:45 this was one of the most difficult ones that we had to do.
  • 01:47 The entire series was hard to do at Auschwitz Birkenau.
  • 01:51 But in this one I had to go into the crematorium
  • 01:55 in order to speak to you from the place
  • 01:58 that remains standing where the actual crematorium stood
  • 02:02 and where the bodies were burned.
  • 02:05 It was the hardest thing I have done in my ministry life.
  • 02:08 And we feel obligated to bring you this story.
  • 02:12 We need to document this,
  • 02:14 as the Holocaust generation is passing from the scene
  • 02:17 and also show how God's redemption brings beauty for ashes
  • 02:23 as the nation of Israel, the people of Israel
  • 02:26 are restored to our Land and the beauty that is Israel.
  • 02:30 So lets go now to Auschwitz.
  • 03:13 I am coming to you out of
  • 03:14 respect for my ancestors
  • 03:17 and an obligation to you as our viewers.
  • 03:21 I feel supremely unqualified to stand here as
  • 03:25 somebody who has had a comfortable life.
  • 03:29 But I am in Crematorium 1 in Auschwitz
  • 03:33 Holocaust deniers today are either
  • 03:35 deniers or minimizers.
  • 03:37 Some say it never happened
  • 03:39 which is absurd of course.
  • 03:40 Some say, Oh, well there couldn't have been
  • 03:42 gas chambers or crematoriums,
  • 03:43 there's no such thing.
  • 03:45 I'm standing in the first one.
  • 03:48 This was an operation mostly from 1941 to 1943,
  • 03:53 initially Soviet prisoners, Polish prisoners,
  • 03:56 political prisoners so-called who had committed no crimes in general,
  • 04:02 were exterminated and then their bodies
  • 04:05 were brought in on this conveyor belt.
  • 04:08 And then the bodies, the corpses would be shoved
  • 04:11 through these areas into these ovens burned to ash.
  • 04:18 And then the ash would be distributed elsewhere.
  • 04:23 Its unfathomable.
  • 04:27 Its very hard to be here.
  • 04:33 The eminent Jewish philosopher
  • 04:35 Emil Fackenheim
  • 04:37 wrote a wonderful book
  • 04:38 called "To Mend The World"
  • 04:40 trying to make sense out of this era.
  • 04:43 One of the things he said was,
  • 04:44 "Yes, there were political prisoners."
  • 04:46 "Yes, it was war."
  • 04:47 "Yes, all of that is true."
  • 04:49 "But it was only the Jewish people"
  • 04:51 "whose crime was having Jewish blood."
  • 04:54 And there are of course trumped up
  • 04:56 charges against Jews as well to get them here.
  • 04:58 But you cannot overlook the systematic
  • 05:01 extermination of 6 million Jewish people
  • 05:04 without recognizing that it was an operation
  • 05:08 scientifically put together by the
  • 05:10 "civilized country", of Germany.
  • 05:13 And in fact, they could come here,
  • 05:16 do this work all day
  • 05:18 and then go home and listen to the greatest music of the world,
  • 05:22 Beethoven, Bach, and read Goethe and Schiller.
  • 05:26 And the dichotomy cannot be explained in any other way
  • 05:31 but by looking at it spiritually, ultimately
  • 05:34 and seeing that we live in a world with good and evil.
  • 05:59 Sometimes I look at these events,
  • 06:01 the mentality of the German people at the time and
  • 06:04 as a therapist I try to look at it psychologically
  • 06:08 but psychology cannot explain the massive
  • 06:12 levels of compartmentalization and denial.
  • 06:15 You think about what Yeshua said in Matthew 7:5,
  • 06:18 To take the beam out of your own eye
  • 06:20 before you try to take the speck
  • 06:22 out of someone else's eye.
  • 06:23 And there's this -
  • 06:25 And woe to those
  • 06:26 who call good "evil"
  • 06:27 and evil "good."
  • 06:28 Isaiah 5:20
  • 06:29 that we have this capacity as humans to be in just a huge
  • 06:35 amount of denial about the evil that we are participating in.
  • 06:39 Myles, that's so true.
  • 06:40 We'll be back after this.
  • 06:44 We hope you're enjoying our series
  • 06:46 Beauty for Ashes
  • 06:47 as we contrast the horrors of the Holocaust
  • 06:50 with the miracle of modern Israel.

  • 07:03 "Beauty for Ashes"
  • 07:07 Hi, you know, a lot of things are going on
  • 07:09 in the world today,
  • 07:10 and especially in Israel.
  • 07:12 And this news needs to be told
  • 07:14 through this lens.
  • 07:16 That's what we do here at Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 07:19 And we're only able to do it because of
  • 07:21 your generous donations.
  • 07:23 And we just wanted to remind you
  • 07:25 please keep giving as you are able.
  • 07:28 And we will keep doing what we do as well.
  • 07:30 Thank you so much.
  • 07:34 This ministry has been one of the earliest proponents
  • 07:37 of teaching the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.
  • 07:40 They've been doing it since the 1970's.
  • 07:42 And we're really involved with
  • 07:43 ministries throughout Israel,
  • 07:45 life-giving ministries,
  • 07:46 social work ministries.
  • 07:48 We're really involved in helping to see
  • 07:50 this work come to pass
  • 07:52 that God Himself has begun,
  • 07:54 which is the restoration of the Land of Israel,
  • 07:57 the Jewish people,
  • 07:58 and the grafting in of all those who believe.
  • 08:01 Right, right.
  • 08:02 Well we know that
  • 08:02 you watch this program
  • 08:04 because that's your heart too,
  • 08:05 that you love Israel,
  • 08:06 you love supporting Israel.
  • 08:08 And we want to thank you
  • 08:09 for partnering with us.
  • 08:10 Let's go now to hear Myles
  • 08:12 at the Museum in Israel.
  • 08:35 We're here at the Israel Museum.
  • 08:38 At the risk of sounding like
  • 08:40 Adam Sandler singing the Hanukkah song.
  • 08:42 The fact is that Jewish people have been at the
  • 08:45 forefront of every kind of art form
  • 08:48 since the beginning of time.
  • 08:50 And Israel is one of the most prolific
  • 08:53 places from which art generates.
  • 08:56 Think about the writers that you've read over the years,
  • 09:00 The science fiction writer.
  • 09:05 Talking about Hebrew culture
  • 09:07 and Jewish culture
  • 09:08 in the Old Country in Europe.
  • 09:10 What about some popular musicians?
  • 09:12 (aka) Robert Zimmerman
  • 09:17 All Jewish people.
  • 09:19 All related to this restoration
  • 09:21 and this release of beauty.
  • 09:23 This release of power.
  • 09:25 The release of art that comes
  • 09:27 through the Jewish people all over the world.
  • 09:29 Fantastic writers of Broadway Shows
  • 09:34 and Directors like Leonard Bernstein,
  • 09:36 "West Side Story"
  • 09:38 And all the actors that you've seen,
  • 09:40 many of whom you
  • 09:42 don't even realize are Jewish people.
  • 09:43 The are " lantzmen ",
  • 09:44 they are "part of the family"
  • 09:51 And throughout every era of life
  • 09:54 every part of life this creativity,
  • 09:56 this desire to be part of Tikkun Olam
  • 09:59 of making the world a better place
  • 10:01 a more beautiful place,
  • 10:03 a more restored place
  • 10:05 of giving something back,
  • 10:07 of restoring that which has been broken
  • 10:09 I believe by the fall of man as we see in Genesis
  • 10:12 but also over the years as
  • 10:14 people drift further and further from God.
  • 10:17 And now throughout history,
  • 10:19 throughout the world
  • 10:21 people coming back to and bringing forth
  • 10:24 creativity in every sphere of life.
  • 10:26 This is a visual arts center.
  • 10:29 But the arts of all kind have been
  • 10:32 connected to the Jewish people forever.
  • 10:35 Not to mention the intellectual contributions of
  • 10:41 everyone from the least to the greatest.
  • 10:44 Albert Einstein, one of the
  • 10:46 greatest thinkers of all time.
  • 10:48 Part of this restoration,
  • 10:50 part of the desire of the
  • 10:52 human mind to reach for that which is
  • 10:54 coming down from heaven and touching the human spirit.
  • 10:59 So here we are at the Israel Museum.
  • 11:02 A good place to speak about the contribution of
  • 11:05 Jewish people to the arts, to literature,
  • 11:08 to sports, to every sphere of life as we
  • 11:11 participate in making the world a better place.
  • 11:41 It's important to remember
  • 11:42 that even though our story is
  • 11:45 Out of the Ashes,
  • 11:46 out of the horror of the Holocaust,
  • 11:48 the promise of love,
  • 11:50 the promise of Abraham's children
  • 11:52 being a blessing
  • 11:53 to the entire earth
  • 11:55 goes way back 4,000 years
  • 11:56 to Genesis 12:1-3
  • 11:58 where the promise is
  • 12:00 that God would bless
  • 12:01 those who bless the children of Abraham,
  • 12:03 curse those who curse the children of Abraham.
  • 12:05 That's why cultures have
  • 12:07 disappeared from the earth
  • 12:08 based on whether they
  • 12:10 loved or hated Abraham and his sons.
  • 12:13 And now we see the power of love in
  • 12:17 the arts, in the incredible
  • 12:19 manifestation of beauty that
  • 12:21 is modern Israel.
  • 12:23 Yeah, we are here in the Israel Museum.
  • 12:25 It's also called "The Shrine of the Book".
  • 12:27 The copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls are kept here.
  • 12:31 And when you come here you can come and see them.
  • 12:33 They're amazing.
  • 12:35 And it's the restoration that we're talking about.
  • 12:37 It's out of the ashes to life.
  • 12:39 It's what Ezekiel prophesied.
  • 12:42 He prophesied that the dead bones would come back to life.
  • 12:46 What is a dry bone?
  • 12:47 It's something without marrow.
  • 12:49 It's something without blood.
  • 12:51 But God has brought the Jewish people back,
  • 12:53 He has breathed his Life on them,
  • 12:55 He has called them in to His Way, His Life.
  • 12:58 And He has given them the ability to love beyond hate.
  • 13:03 Hate is such a diminishing degree of what people have.
  • 13:09 When you love you expand you grow, you multiply.
  • 13:13 You know when I think about the Israeli art
  • 13:15 I think about that it is always focused on family,
  • 13:18 and on faith, on future.
  • 13:21 And it's focused on things that are above
  • 13:23 and it's focused on things that bring joy.
  • 13:25 It's so amazing, there's so many people -
  • 13:27 Yerushalayim is the painting of two Jerusalems,
  • 13:31 one coming down and the Jerusalem that is here.
  • 13:34 It's actually a prophetic painting.
  • 13:36 And there's so many,
  • 13:38 there's the pomegranate that speaks of the
  • 13:40 quintessential fruit of the Jewish people,
  • 13:43 of they wish you would have a fruitful and a blessed New Year.
  • 13:47 There's so many beautiful things Myles.
  • 13:49 One of my favorite painters
  • 13:51 is Marc Chagall,
  • 13:52 a hero of the early 20th century.
  • 13:54 His paintings have mystical
  • 13:57 pictures within them
  • 13:59 of the connection between the Jewish people and Yeshua,
  • 14:03 the Jewish people and the history of this Land,
  • 14:06 a very mystical and beautiful sense of art.
  • 14:09 His stained glassed windows are in the hospital are here
  • 14:13 and this incredible tapestry of his
  • 14:15 is in the Knesset.
  • 14:16 It's enormous.
  • 14:18 One of my favorite artists of all time.
  • 14:20 You know there's something very interesting
  • 14:21 about the word "love".
  • 14:23 In English it's hard to understand what people mean
  • 14:25 when they say they love a doughnut
  • 14:26 as much as they love a person.
  • 14:28 But in Hebrew there is " Rajah ",
  • 14:30 there is "the friend"
  • 14:32 The friend, like Ruth.
  • 14:34 There's the " Ahava "
  • 14:36 the "Love" that is expansive.
  • 14:40 And then beyond that
  • 14:41 there's of course the " Dodi ",
  • 14:44 " Ani L'Dodi, v'Dodi Li "
  • 14:46 "I am my Beloved's"
  • 14:48 "and my Beloved is mine"
  • 14:49 It's speaking not only of a man and woman
  • 14:51 but also of God and Humankind.
  • 14:54 And so we would leave you
  • 14:55 with that thought.
  • 14:56 " Ani L'Dodi, v'Dodi Li "

  • 15:44 Please contact us for more information.
  • 15:52 You know, when you
  • 15:53 come with us to Israel
  • 15:54 You'll see the ancient
  • 15:55 and the modern.
  • 15:57 And you'll see how
  • 15:58 this tiny little nation
  • 15:59 has come forth to such
  • 16:00 beauty and such grace
  • 16:02 even in the face of difficulty
  • 16:04 the hand of God is
  • 16:05 on these people
  • 16:07 and on this place, Myles.
  • 16:08 Yeah, I think we see even
  • 16:09 from this particular series
  • 16:12 that the will to survive
  • 16:13 is connected to the innovation
  • 16:15 and to the arts
  • 16:16 and to the beauty
  • 16:17 that's produced.
  • 16:19 Because there's just this sense of " L'Chaim ", "To Life"
  • 16:21 that we have this desire
  • 16:24 to see life and life expand.
  • 16:26 Joseph Bau is one of the key artists
  • 16:29 that helped in the effort in moving,
  • 16:32 transitioning from the horror of the Holocaust
  • 16:34 into the beauty of current Israel.
  • 16:37 And we actually had a chance to visit the museum
  • 16:40 dedicated to him by his children.
  • 16:42 It's The Bau Museum in Tel Aviv.
  • 16:44 Let's go there now.
  • 17:09 We can't look at the arts being restored
  • 17:13 and the beauty of artistic endeavor
  • 17:15 being reclaimed for Israel without
  • 17:18 understanding the costs that was paid
  • 17:20 and some of the ironic pieces of art
  • 17:23 that came to be here in Israel after the war.
  • 17:26 It actually began during the war.
  • 17:27 We see here an outrageous picture
  • 17:30 done by Joseph Bau.
  • 17:33 Joseph and Rebecca Bau
  • 17:35 had a lifelong love affair
  • 17:37 that included a way
  • 17:38 of attaining sanity
  • 17:42 in the face of the Auschwitz death camp.
  • 17:45 In this case by making a mockery of the
  • 17:48 death of the Jews becoming smoke going up into the air.
  • 17:52 A very painful and difficult view of
  • 17:55 what was happening in that particular death camp.
  • 17:58 But as we shift over here to life itself
  • 18:01 you see a mural of their entire family
  • 18:03 in the goodness of life after the Holocaust
  • 18:07 when they were rescued,
  • 18:08 when they were found
  • 18:10 they had daughters, family and growth
  • 18:13 among the family members.
  • 18:15 And it developed a wonderful life here in Israel.
  • 18:19 This whole story is told with humor,
  • 18:21 with irony, with sarcasm.
  • 18:24 Let's go into Joseph's studio
  • 18:26 and take a look at some of the works
  • 18:29 that he's famous for.
  • 18:31 This is a very humble studio
  • 18:33 but contains some very profound artworks.
  • 18:47 Here again we see pictures
  • 18:48 of Joseph and Rebecca
  • 18:50 as they are being saved out of the Holocaust.
  • 18:53 If you saw "Shindler's List"
  • 18:56 it was actually this couple who
  • 18:58 got married in Shindler's factory in the movie.
  • 19:02 Not exactly cinematically accurate
  • 19:04 because they got married in the concentration camp.
  • 19:07 But Spielberg used it in a dramatic sense
  • 19:11 to take a respite, a moment in time
  • 19:13 when something good could
  • 19:15 come in the middle of the Holocaust.
  • 19:18 Our parents, they met
  • 19:20 inside Plaszow concentration camp.
  • 19:23 Our father got dressed as a woman,
  • 19:26 smuggled himself into the women's camp.
  • 19:29 And that's how they got married secretly.
  • 19:32 Now the wedding was very unique.
  • 19:35 I think it's the only wedding.
  • 19:37 Not only it was from love to each other,
  • 19:41 it was from the love for all the people around them because
  • 19:45 they wanted to show people that life continues,
  • 19:49 they are getting married,
  • 19:51 they lifting their spirits.
  • 19:53 And our father was an artist.
  • 19:56 And he saved hundreds of Jews.
  • 19:59 He forged documents for them.
  • 20:01 And from the underground they came to him
  • 20:03 and they said, forge for yourself a document and run away.
  • 20:06 So he said, but if I run away who'll save the others?
  • 20:10 And he stayed till the last day.
  • 20:13 Someone asked him after the war,
  • 20:15 tell me aren't you sorry?
  • 20:16 You could have escaped
  • 20:18 and not suffered for 5 years.
  • 20:19 So he said, but if I had escaped
  • 20:22 how would I have met my wife?
  • 20:25 Well Joseph Bau dedicated himself to something good
  • 20:28 which was the renaissance of all kinds of
  • 20:31 cartoon art with a sarcastic touch,
  • 20:34 with a humorous touch.
  • 20:36 Up here we see the absurdity
  • 20:39 of lipsticks being changed from bullets into lipsticks.
  • 20:45 And the words in Hebrew
  • 20:47 are very similar
  • 20:49 and so it has an ironic message to those around
  • 20:52 that wouldn't it be wonderful when the day comes
  • 20:54 when instead of making bullets
  • 20:56 we are making lipsticks
  • 20:58 so that love and not war
  • 21:00 is the affect of these international difficulties?
  • 21:03 We see the dove of peace
  • 21:05 slightly out of the grasp of the hand of the man.
  • 21:09 We see here that the upward climb for peace and the
  • 21:12 seeming impossibility of achieving peace
  • 21:16 and the devastation
  • 21:19 of what was lost in music
  • 21:21 as this musician
  • 21:23 is trying to play
  • 21:25 his bass cello
  • 21:26 with a saw.
  • 21:28 And the probability
  • 21:29 of things being lost.
  • 21:30 Over here we see the sharing
  • 21:33 within the death camps
  • 21:35 as people shared
  • 21:37 what little they had
  • 21:38 to stay alive.
  • 21:39 And here, Joseph Bau himself
  • 21:41 is carving himself
  • 21:42 out of a piece of rock.
  • 21:44 A statement about
  • 21:46 having to mold ourselves
  • 21:48 into the likeness and image that God has for us.
  • 21:51 And our museum is open 7 days a week.
  • 21:55 You only have to book a visit in advance.
  • 21:58 And when people come here they see -
  • 22:01 first of all they hear their story, unique story.
  • 22:03 But they see what they created here in Israel.
  • 22:06 He was like an entrepreneur.
  • 22:09 He started from scratch everything.
  • 22:11 He built the smallest movie theatre in the world.
  • 22:13 He was the first animator in Israel
  • 22:16 and people come
  • 22:19 And they see this beautiful unique museum.
  • 22:23 That is the only museum
  • 22:25 of its kind in the world.
  • 22:27 Because it combines the love to Israel,
  • 22:30 the love to the Hebrew language,
  • 22:31 Holocaust - the forgery,
  • 22:34 He worked for the Mossad.
  • 22:37 He was the main graphic artist of the Mossad
  • 22:40 who forged documents for all the spies.
  • 22:43 And it's a lot of humor and animation
  • 22:48 and the smallest movie theatre in the world.
  • 22:50 And everything is unique in this museum.
  • 22:54 Throughout his work, he used humor
  • 22:57 sarcasm and interest to make it possible for
  • 23:01 people to take a longer view of this tragedy and
  • 23:05 to do something with it that was positive, to say
  • 23:08 yes it's terrible now,
  • 23:09 it's absurd, it makes no sense,
  • 23:11 but I can through my art
  • 23:13 make sense out of this.
  • 24:41 Our parents were talking about
  • 24:42 the Holocaust every day.
  • 24:44 That's why they were
  • 24:46 so different from others
  • 24:47 who didn't talk.
  • 24:48 They said we must talk about it
  • 24:51 because in 50 years, if someone will get up
  • 24:53 and say the Holocaust didn't exist,
  • 24:55 where are the proofs?
  • 24:57 So they spoke and they encouraged other people to speak.
  • 25:00 That's why our father wrote his memoirs in a
  • 25:03 book "Dear God, Have You Ever Gone Hungry?" .
  • 25:07 But they were telling it in a unique way
  • 25:11 because they were telling us what happened
  • 25:13 but there were always jokes.
  • 25:16 So it wasn't a burden for us,
  • 25:19 the opposite you see.
  • 25:20 We continue.
  • 25:21 We tell the story
  • 25:23 and we encourage others to tell.
  • 25:26 MYLES - So here we are,
  • 25:27 the Bau Museum in Tel Aviv.
  • 25:30 it's a landmark that you should know about
  • 25:32 one small example of the incredible artistic endeavor
  • 25:36 that kept the spirit of the Jewish people
  • 25:39 alive during the Holocaust.
  • 25:55 Sometimes these programs can feel like
  • 25:57 we're on a roller coaster ride
  • 25:59 going into the depths of hell
  • 26:00 and to the heights of heaven.
  • 26:02 But really there is the over-arching
  • 26:05 theme of God's love for His people.
  • 26:07 God's love for those He calls "the whole world"
  • 26:10 to love Him in return.
  • 26:12 And I think about the seminal Hebrew
  • 26:14 prayer from Deuteronomy 6
  • 26:16 [Speaking Hebrew]
  • 26:25 and it goes on to say [Speaking Hebrew]
  • 26:38 And that is what God is desiring
  • 26:40 to come back towards Him
  • 26:42 because He first loved us.
  • 26:44 Yeah - love, faith and hope
  • 26:47 These three things abide.
  • 26:49 And these as believers,
  • 26:50 we are called to walk in.
  • 26:52 So Myles, we need a
  • 26:53 fresh infilling of love.
  • 26:54 We need to be like the Israelis
  • 26:56 and have hope against hope.
  • 26:58 And we need to stand fast like Daniel did
  • 27:00 in the face of difficulties.
  • 27:02 You know we have all the examples that we need
  • 27:04 in the Scripture
  • 27:06 and then in modern life.
  • 27:07 And so, may the Lord give us
  • 27:09 His grace to stand firm in these days.
  • 27:11 That's good, yes.
  • 27:13 And speaking of standing firm,
  • 27:15 that's why every time we end the program
  • 27:17 we always remind you,
  • 27:18 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:20 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
