One family’s extraordinary story of survival in the Nazi concentration camps is set to be told next weekend at Ely Cathedral.
The lecture will be given by Eva Clarke who was born in Mauthausen Concentration Camp, Austria, just days before the camp was liberated by the Americans in 1945.
Remarkably, Eva and her mother Anka survived. For many years, Eva has testified throughout the UK, as part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s outreach programme, on her mother’s extraordinary survival, and how humanity and love overcame horror.
Anyone over the age of 14 is welcome to attend the lecture.
Admission is free, although there will be a retiring collection in aid of the Holocaust Education Trust and Amnesty International.
