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.

Such an important part of history to ensure school children are aware of.

Even almost 70 years later, the enormity of murdering 6 million men, women and children mainly in gas chambers simply because they were Jewish is hard for any 'normal' human being to comprehend . Such evil .

People were treated like animals and worse but it wasn't just Jews. We need to get over this general perception of the Holocaust being merely a Jewish cataclysm.
