Event description
A personal account of how Dr Martin Stern MBE survived the Holocaust

About this Event

Dr Martin Stern was born in Hilversum in Holland in September 1938. When the Nazis invaded Holland in 1940, Martin's father went into hiding and his mother was taken to hospital to give birth, where she later died. Martin went to stay with his parents' friends. One day, an innocent mistake led Martin and his sister, Erica, to be sent to Westerbork and then onto Theresienstadt. Martin and his sister survived the Holocaust and moved to Britain.

Martin studied medicine at Oxford, ­becoming an immunologist and an ­authority on asthma. He now lives in retirement with his wife and has three children and four granddaughters.

Martin is a frequent speaker about the Holocaust, telling his story to hundreds of people every year.

For Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, the Welsh Muslim Cultural Foundation are delighted to welcome Martin to share his story.
