Event description
G2G Presents: Letters of Love and Loss by Francis Morton - Thursday 2nd September, 7.30pm (UK)

About this event

Francis Morton’s mother, Rene, managed to come to Britain from Czechoslovakia on a domestic visa in September 1938.  In his presentation Francis uses extracts of letters, sent by his mother’s family and friends from Czechoslovakia to reconstruct the lives and fate of the family, most of whom were murdered in the Holocaust. These letters also enable Francis to present his father's dramatic escape from Europe.   Extracts from the letter are read by actors and are accompanied by both personal and historical photographs.

Organiser Generation 2 Generation

Organiser of G2G Presents: Letters of Love and Loss by Francis Morton

We empower 2nd and 3rd generation descendants of Holocaust survivors to present their family histories to a wide variety of audiences, so that the Holocaust is not forgotten or denied. We aim to encourage empathy and understanding of others and thereby challenge racisim and discrimination.

  • To achieve this goal, we provide schools, religious, community and civic institutions with speakers who have a personal connection with Holocaust survivors. We train our speakers to deliver engaging and age appropriate presentations to a variety of audiences, using survivor testimony, artefacts and audio visual tools.

G2G Presents holds monthly events, inviting interested parties to hear our speakers deliver their carefully prepared family stories, or current issues of the day.
