"Terrible things are happening outside. At any time of night and day, poor helpless people are being dragged out of their homes. They’re allowed to take only a rucksack and a little cash with them, and even then, they’re robbed of these possessions on the way. Families are torn apart; men, women and children are separated. Children come home from school to find that their parents have disappeared. Women return from shopping to find their houses sealed, their families gone"

The Diary of Anne Frank, Wednesday 13 January 1943

Young people hear from Holocaust survivor

Last term Dr Martin Stern visited schools in Cumbria to share his personal story of the Holocaust.

Just five years old when he was taken by the Nazis and transported to Westerbork Camp, Dr Stern shared his story as part of launching our work with schools in Cumbria.

Young people were able to hear what it was like to be Jewish under the Nazis, bringing into clarity the real impact of prejudice, and allowing students to reflect and engage in conversation about why it is so important to stand against hate.

"Dr Stern spoke about his experiences as a child surviving the persecution of Jewish people during the Holocaust and he also talked with expert knowledge of his understanding of the origins of genocide. He is a firm believer in education as a means to changing the future and his willingness to engage with young people was inspirational" - Ms Doolan, Head of Humanities at Chetwynde School

New film: Eva's Promise

Join Anne Frank's stepsister Eva Schloss at the screening for new film: Eva's Promise. 

Our Co-Founder and Honorary President, Eva Schloss will be attending the screening and Q&A for new film, Eva's Promise. Join her to discover the story of Eva's brother, Heinz, and his remarkable legacy, told on screen for the first time.

Eva's Promise:

On a train to Auschwitz, Eva's brother Heinz asked her for a promise. He had hidden his paintings and poetry under the floor of their attic hiding place, and asked that she retrieve them if he did not survive the camps. This remarkable film shows how Eva fulfilled that promise and went on to share her brother's artistic legacy and family's story with the world, passionate about educating people to challenge prejudice.

Book your tickets today and be there for the film's premiere.

Showing Sunday 29 January 2023, 2pm at JW3, the Jewish Community Centre London
