Holocaust Memorial Event @ QUAD Derby – Thurs 26th January 2012

QUAD in Derby will be hosting two special events to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2012.

A Survivor Speakers’ Evening will take place on Thursday, January 26, from 7pm.

The annual event will include words, music and dance to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2012 with the theme of Speak Up, Speak Out.

The evening will feature guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Simon Winston from the Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre in Nottinghamshire, where he has been lecturing for the past 13 years.

The event will also feature performances from the Association of Ukrainians (Derby Branch), Derby Gypsy Liaison Group, Derby Jewish Community and Bosnia-Herzegovina Community Association.

On Friday, January 27, Quad will be screening Into The Arms Of Strangers: Stories Of The Kinder Transport at 9.30am.

The Oscar-winning documentary tells of the Kindertransport rescue operation that brought 10,000 children from German-held lands to Great Britain in the months prior to World War II.

The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Steven Mendelsson, a former member of the Kindertransport organisation.

Booking is essential for these two free events.
