Event details

Holocaust Memorial Day event

This event has been organised by Regional Ambassadors of the Holocaust Educational Trust in conjunction with Constantine/Goodricke College and York Jewish Society. 

Marc was born in Vienna and was the son of Jewish parents from Poland.  He recounts the antisemitism he experienced as a young boy in Austria. Marc’s parents made the agonising decision to send Marc on the Kindertransport to London.  Marc will discuss what life was like in the Jewish Refugee’s Children Hostel in Margate where he was taken care of. 

Marc kept in contact with his parents until war was declared. He later found out that both his parents had been killed at Auschwitz concentration camp. Marc will share his testimony and take questions from the audience. Hearing the testimony of a survivor is incredibly worthwhile and one everyone should hear. 

The event is free and to allow the Trust to continue in the fantastic work it does, a collection bucket will be held at the end. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
