St Barnabas Church
I am a Committee member of Swanland University of The Third Age with responsibility for organising our public lectures. I consider it important to maintain awareness of the Holocaust to both deepen our understanding of what happened and why together with what it means for our world today. Following a successful meeting last year organised for us by 'Generation To Generation' they have provided us with a speaker for this year: Mr Ernie Hunter who will recount the story of his Mother , Fanny Hochstetter, who refused to be bullied and intimidated by the Nazis as she believed that they could not destroy German democracy. Our meeting in January 2021 sparked a great deal of interest and we are confident that Mr Hunter's lecture will do likewise.
