Event description

Description

Free talk and document display

Following capture by the SS in May 1943, Lady Zahava Kohn and her family spent almost two years in Nazi concentration camps. In spite of the appalling conditions they faced, Zahava and her parents survived and were released in 1945. Over 70 years after her liberation, we are honoured to invite Lady Zahava Kohn to talk about her experience in the camps.

In addition to her own unique and personal account, Zahava’s daughter, Hephzibah Rudofsky, will also speak at the event, providing a second-generation perspective. There will be a display of Zahava’s remarkable trove of documents, letters and photographs, alongside records from our collection.

Please note that this event will be using original documents, as a result food, drink, coats or bags will not be permitted in to the event venue. These items must be left in our free lockers on the ground floor; failure to comply with this request will result in the refusal of admission to the venue.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
