Eighty-five years after the devastating bombing of May 14th, 1940, Rotterdam is a vital city that prefers to look ahead rather than over its shoulder. That is precisely why commemoration is so important, Lahav Shani believes: "Only when we know our origins can we stay on course. Remember loss, exude confidence in the future: no piece of music does that more beautifully than Gabriel Fauré's comforting Requiem.
