Invitation - ‘Suffering and Survival: One Family’s Experience of the Holocaust’, 25 May


Suffering and Survival: One Family’s Experience of the Holocaust”

Online webinarTuesday 25th May 2021, 5.30pm.

As those who experienced the Holocaust first-hand pass away, responsibility is shifting to second-generation Holocaust survivors to ensure that memory of the genocide remains alive. 

This session welcomes Noreen Plen to share her family’s experiences of the Holocaust. Noreen was born and raised in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and retains a strong link to the North-East. Her family originated from Poland, but very few survived the Nazi occupation during the Second World War. 

This event will include a short introduction by Daniel Adamson, who is researching portrayals of the relationship between Britain and the Holocaust for a PhD in the Durham University History Department, a presentation from Noreen Plen, and an audience Q&A.
