Child Holocaust Survivor

Event Date December 4, 2015

Location – TC013, Tŷ Crawshay

Born in Amsterdam in 1935, when World War 2 ended Stephen Frank was a nine year old interred in the Theresienstadt ghetto in what was then Czechoslovakia – and out of 15,000 Jewish children held there, only 93 survived to be liberated by the Soviets.

His lecture reflects on his direct experiences of the Holocaust, it’s personal costs and the wider lessons of memory and tolerance. At a time when, again, Europe witnesses large numbers of men, women and children fleeing war and persecution, this lecture provides a timely reminder of the importance of humanitarian values in shaping our responsibilities.
