Sunday 1 July: AGM and talk by Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg

On Sunday 1st July you are warmly invited to book your place at:

My Dear Ones, One Family and the Final Solution, followed by the Second Generation Network Annual General Meeting

Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, a child of refugees from Nazi Germany, will talk about the process of discovering the old letters and documents which led him to write his latest book, My Dear Ones, and how he shaped them into a compelling and touching narrative, setting the lives of five of his relatives in the context of the Final Solution. He will share extracts from the book and the impact of the contents of an old suitcase upon himself, and the wider family. This will be followed by an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and share their own experiences of uncovering and dealing with a pre- and post-Holocaust legacy. This will be followed by light refreshments and the Second Generation Network AGM.

Places are free, but for security reasons it is essential to book in advance. There will be no admittance on the day unless you have booked beforehand. To book a place please email:
