Re: Excellent lecture series from The Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre #holocaust

Michael Sharp

I was the source of the original posting as I volunteer at the Centre. It is the first Holocaust educational institution / memorial in the north of England and is the only one based on a university campus. It focuses on telling the story of the Holocaust and its lessons for life today through the experiences of 16 survivors and the operational philosophy is survivor-driven, making us unique in the UK. Although hosted by the university we are not part of it but are a small independent charity. Please do support us by joining us in the talks and if you are in the area, please do visit us - our opening times are on our website and are updated top reflect coronavirus-related restrictions.

Finally, this week marks the sad loss of our founding chair and the driving force behind the Centre, Lilian Black BEM - honoured in the latest Queen's Birthday Honours for services to Holocaust education. She died this week from coronavirus, before she could be formally awarded her honour. May her memory be a blessing.
