This year Michelle Richman joined us to share her late father’s testimony, Zigi Shipper BEM - a survivor of the Holocaust, who as a child experienced the Łódź Ghetto and several camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau. We are incredibly honoured to have Michelle with us to share her late father’s important story.
NB: Mentioned during Michelle's talk, The Royal Collection 'Seven Portraits: Surviving the Holocaust', which include Zigi can be viewed here.
With thanks to Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) who make these events possible. We invite you to make a contribution to HET to enable them to keep sharing the stories of survivors.
In response to this event, we have also curated further reading and watching below, to learn more about the Holocaust. Do let us know what you think (email@example.com).
