This year, many people will be coming together to mark Holocaust Memorial Day virtually, to help those in need and to build a better future.
Our guest speaker this year is Vivienne Cato who will be speaking to the forum about her Mother, Eva Cato. Vivienne’s Jewish mother was born in 1926 in the Slovak part of
Czechoslovakia, which became Slovakia at the end of 1938.
Vivienne will talk about what happened to her mother and grandmother during
the Second World War when they had to live as non-Jewish Hungarians in Budapest,
Hungary in order to survive the Nazis’ determination to exterminate the entire
European Jewish population and about how we can remember and commemorate the
Holocaust in the UK.
This virtual event is open to all and is FREE OF CHARGE, but places are limited.
