Survivor Speaker – Arek Hersh

14 April @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


The Centre is delighted to announce that Arek Hersh will be speaking on Tuesday 14th April 2020

A professionally filmed video of Arek showing him revisiting the places in his past will be shown at 12.15

Arek will then continue his testimony in person and answer questions between 1.00 p.m. and 2.30 p.m.

The centre will be open from 10.00am – 4.30pm to allow time for members of the public to look round the exhibitions and gardens before and after the talk.

If you are unable to visit to see Arek his book can be purchased here or here in a book pack.

At age 11, Arek Hersh was taken by Nazis to a small church in his hometown of Sieradz along with his family and members of the Jewish community. There, Arek was separated from his family and would never see them again. Arek survived his time in two ghettos and several Concentration Camps, before being liberated at age 16. Almost all of his family were murdered. Arek now shares his testimony and does everything he can to counter assertions that the Holocaust was just a ‘detail of history’.
