This event will consist of a screening of 'Children Of The Holocaust' - a series of recorded oral testimonies from Holocaust survivors about their childhood experiences, turned into short animated films. The films show how people experienced the Holocaust and Nazi occupation in several different European countries and will give your students a nuanced and intimate insight to the history of the Holocaust.
After the films a survivor speaker will talk about their own experiences and there will be time for your students to ask them questions.
DORIT OLIVER-WOLFF (Duke of York's, Brighton, 16 Jan 10:15)
Dorit Oliver-Wolff was born a Hungarian Jew. She danced in front of the future king of Yugoslavia at just four years old; but by six years old she was living in hiding from the German soldiers who were rounding up and transporting her fellow Jews to concentration camps around Europe.
After the war she weighed three stone, had lost all her hair and was too weak to stand up. Dorit has written about her remarkable life in a book, From Yellow Star to Pop Star. She is an experienced public speaker and human rights campaigner.
