On this occasion when the Northern Second Generation group visited Beth Shalom again, we were joined by two First Generation survivor members Rachel and Simon, as well as Network members from Cornwall, Oxford and London. We had lunch and a discussion as well as viewing the exhibitions and garden.

THE WIENER LIBRARY
The Wiener Library in London is one of the world’s leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. Formed in 1933, the Library’s unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness accounts. It is a very useful source when researching family history.
A STAR SHALL STRIDE
This very moving and awe-inspiring artwork was created by Third Generation Manchester-based artist Chava Rosenzweig. It hung in the Imperial War Museum North, Salford for the whole of 2013. An article about Chava and her work appeared in Second Generation Voices during 2013.
SECOND GENERATION VOICES
The Second Generation Network’s journal began life without the ‘s’. By issue 3 it was agreed that the ‘s’ should be added to reflect the range of experiences and opinions amongst us.
