Each year the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is to hold a Public Conversation on issues surrounding the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides. Our 2013 event was held on 25 November and addressed the question: Is too much asked of survivors? This is a very important question in relation to Holocaust and genocide commemoration, and is becoming particularly more relevant as survivors grow older.
Discussing the question at the event was Kemal Pervanic, a survivor of the Omarska concentration camp in Bosnia, Holocaust Survivors' Centre manager Aviva Trup and the Institute for Education's Ruth-Anne Lenga. Meanwhile, Dr James Smith, the founder of the Holocaust Centre in Nottinghamshire and Chief Executive of the Aegis Trust, chaired the proceedings.
