This year, the forum will be coming together to mark Holocaust Memorial Day virtually.
Our guest speaker is Anita Peleg from Generation 2 Generation, who will be speaking about her Mother, Naomi Blake.
Naomi was born in 1924 in Czechoslovakia. In April 1944 Naomi and her family were transported in the notorious cattle trains to Auschwitz where many of her family members were selected for the gas chambers. She and her sister were sent to Brahnau concentration camp to work. After escaping from her Nazi captors Naomi returned home to find that her home was in ruins and 17 family members, including 10 young nieces and nephews had been murdered.
Anita will be using audio testimony of Naomi, historical photos and photos of Naomi’s sculpture that demonstrate the strength of the human spirit to survive against the odds and provide a positive legacy for the future.
This virtual event is open to all and is FREE OF CHARGE, but places are limited.
