Holocaust Memorial Day 2016

Please join us to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day when the author and BBC Radio 4 presenter Edward Stourton will be in conversation with AJR member and child Holocaust survivor Joan Salter.

The event, which takes place on Tuesday, 26 January and starts at 2.00 p.m, will reflect the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2016, ‘Don’t Stand By’. The conversation will draw on Edward’s book, Cruel Crossing, in which he describes the escape of thousands of desperate people, including Joan, across the Pyrenees from Nazi-controlled Europe. Signed copies of the book will be available after the event.

Sir Eric Pickles MP, the UK Envoy for Post-Holocaust Issues, will give the concluding remarks.
