A Disco on Ice
Friday 5th, 8.30pm
A massive success first time round, it would probably be a good idea to turn up early for the second edition of the monthly Brunch Bazar at Le Comptoir General on the Canal Saint Martin. As for the first event, there will be stands, dancing lessons and workshops as well as food and drink (which quickly ran out last time apparently).
La Splendeur des Camondo
In his book, Le Dernier des Camondo published in 1997, Pierre Assouline argued that the inscription ‘Mort pour la France’ on the Camondo family mausoleum should be changed to ‘Mort par la France’. It would perhaps be a more truthful epitaph for a prestigious family that was shockingly treated by the country, with the last remaining members all dying in Nazi concentration camps.
The family home is now the rather sad Nissim de Camondo museum, but the exhibition at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsm, which ends this weekend, shows the incredible legacy they left behind and how much they donated to the French state. The fascinating tale of the family is told, from Constantinople in the 19th Century to the tragic conclusion in 1945, alongside the works of art (including Degas, Manet, Monet and Renoir as well as Chinese and Japanese sculptures) they accumulated during their lifetimes.
