An audience at a Holocaust memorial event gathered to hear a survivor’s story yesterday.
About 80 adults and schoolchildren met at the Jubilee Library in Brighton to remember victims of the genocide.
Professor Scarlett Epstein, who escaped from a Nazi concentration camp in 1938, gave a 45-minute talk about her incredible survival story.
Year 6 pupils from Carden Primary School read examples of their work from a Holocaust project, including an interview with survivors.
A silent vigil of remembrance followed by a talk will take place at the Quaker Meeting House on Ship Street on Sunday from 2pm to 4.30pm to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
