Chesterfield Equality and Diversity Forum and Chesterfield Borough Council are joining forces to host the event – which will focus on the national theme of the ‘fragility of freedom’ – on Friday 26 January from 10am to 11.45am.

Melanie Martin from Holocaust charity Generation 2 Generation, will be welcomed as this year’s speaker. Melanie will talk on behalf of her mother, Tootje (Cato) Granaat, and the experiences she had as a Jew who was born in Amsterdam in 1926.

Life in occupied Amsterdam, resistance activities, deportation, death marches, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Sobibor are amongst the hard-hitting subjects which will be covered in her talk, as well as some acts of supreme kindness which contributed to the survival of Melanie’s mother, her aunts and uncle.

The virtual event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams.
