Cultural Sunday

This week's cultural mixed bag:

I stumbled upon this very interesting website, a joint venture between Buenos Aires and Vienna, to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of Kristallnacht, and the Jews who fled Austria for Argentina. There are events taking place in both cities over the next week.
Verlorene Nachbarschaft/Vecinos perdidos (this is a German/Spanish website, sorry English speakers!)
Also in Argentina, Clarin is sponsoring some talks to commemorate 25 years of democracy - see the programme in the image above and here.

And from the Guardian, a column on more recent Colombian writers, some of them available in English: Colombia's brilliant successors to Garcia Marquez
