Join The Wiener Holocaust Library to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 with the Mayor of Camden Sabrina Francis and Dr Christoph Kreutzmüller.

This year’s event will focus on the experiences of victims of Nazi genocide on the day that they were deported to ghettos and camps and will include readings from the Library’s collection of eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust on this theme. The event will also feature a talk by Dr Christoph Kreutzmüller exploring the significance of the contemporary photographs taken of deportations of Jews during the Holocaust.

With remarks by Dr Toby Simpson, Director of The Wiener Holocaust Library and readings by a Camden Youth MP.

We ask that audience members take a lateral flow test in the 24 hours before attending.
