Description

On the 21st February 2018 The University of Nottingham welcomes Holocaust Survivor, Mr Simon Winston, who will give his testimony to staff and students as part of an organised visit by the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET).

The testimony will begin at 1pm in E126, Portland Building with tea and coffee on arrival. This will then be followed by a question and answer session, to enable attendees to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth.

The visit is part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s extensive all year round Outreach Programme, which is available to schools across the UK.

About Simon Winston

Simon was born in 1938 in a small town called Radzivillov, then part of Poland, now in the independent state of the Ukraine. Simon, his mother and father, and his brother were forced to live in a ghetto and Simon experienced much brutality there. However, Simon and his family were able to escape from the ghetto where they went into hiding at a farm. They lived in very cramped conditions.

When they were told they had been freed and the war was over, Simon and his family became refugees and spent two years in a Displaced Persons Camp before moving to England.

Simon has remained in England ever since, sharing his story in order to highlight the importance of learning from the past.
