Holocaust Memorial Day 2016

Holocaust Memorial Day 2016

We were delighted to welcome the author and BBC Radio 4 presenter Edward Stourton as our guest speaker at our commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day.

Edward was in conversation with AJR member and child Holocaust survivor Joan Salter and discussed 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.

The event reflected the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2016, ‘Don’t Stand By’.

We were also also delighted to welcome Sir Eric Pickles MP, the UK Envoy for Post-Holocaust Issues, who gave the conclusing remarks.
