Trude Silman was born into a Jewish family in Czechoslovakia in 1929. For Holocaust Memorial Day, Trude is visiting the Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre to give a talk about her family's experience of Nazi persecution in the 1930s and her escape, at the age of nine, to safety in the UK.
Trude's talk covers her experience as a child refugee in Britain and her lifelong search to learn about her parents' ultimate fate.
How to attend
The talk begins at 2pm and lasts approximately one hour, with time for questions. Trude's story features in the Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre which will be open to visitors from 12 - 4pm.
