Holocaust Survivor Talk at Kingston Uni on Feb 1st

Eva Clarke, who was born in a cart as her mother was transferred from the Nazi Auschwitz extermination camp, will be giving a talk on her remarkable story for a special event coming up at Kingston University on Monday, February 1st, 2016.

EvaClarkeThis is a very special opportunity to hear her in person, and is a public event being organized by both the KU Politics Society and the Faith and Spirituality Service at Kingston University, in conjunction with the Holocaust Education Trust.

The event is on February 1st from 6pm-8pm and will be held at the Penrhyn Road site in the John Galsworthy building in room 0001.

History students, Politics students and any other students are very welcome to attend, and anybody else who wants to hear a direct witness to the terrible events of the Nazi Holocaust.

This month (January) will see a whole series of Holocaust commemorative events taking place across the UK. January 27th is the International Holocaust Memorial Day, which takes place every year on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Allies.

This year the theme of the day is ‘Don’t Stand By’, focusing on our responsibilities not to stand by in the face of discrimination, persecution and threats of genocide.

Various ceremonies will take place on or around Wednesday, January 27th, and Kingston University’s talk by Eva Clarke will be part of our contribution to these important events.

    This looks fascinating and important. Is it open to members of the public (I work at Surrey History Centre and we link to the university’s history blog and I suspect some of the staff here would be interested to attend)?
