About the event
Join Hannah Randall, Dr David Rudrum and Dr Chelsea Sambells, the editors of an anthology of previously unpublished testimony from Holocaust survivors and child refugees who settled in the north of England.
We will also be joined by Holocaust child refugee, Liesel Carter, whose testimony is included in the anthology, to discuss the project and their hope for its role within Holocaust education in the future.
Whereas historical accounts provide often unemotional and factual descriptions of events, this mosaic of voices reveals how survivors coped with complex circumstances in their own way, and were guided by their own unique personalities, morals and cultures.
Free event (booking recommended):
The Holocaust Centre North (HCN) is a charity based on the campus of the University of Huddersfield which is dedicated to telling a global history of the Holocaust through local stories from the north of England. Benefitting from close access to university researchers and thousands of students, the centre works alongside the local community to study, represent and share the voices of the persecuted. It offers a permanent exhibition, learning programme, diverse events, and a growing archive, which helps the centre to fulfil its mission of teaching today’s generation about the dangers of discrimination, persecution, and genocide.
