Camden Council and The Wiener Library Holocaust Memorial Day event

Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 – ‘The Power of Words’


Camden Council’s HMD event is an opportunity to reflect on the HMD theme this year: ‘The Power of Words’

For Holocaust Memorial Day 2018, Camden Council are hosting an event with The Wiener Library, the world's oldest archive of material on the Nazi era and the Holocaust. The Library holds some of the earliest written records of the Holocaust.

The event will feature Kindertransportee Bea Green, who came to Britain aged fourteen as a refugee from Nazi Germany. The event includes readings from The Wiener Library’s collection of eyewitness testimonies to the Holocaust, collected by Library staff in the 1950s.

This HMD event will be in the presence of the Mayor, and local politicians, and is open to the public, councillors and staff.

Rabbi Shlomo Levin will say Kaddish.
