HMD 2015 – The Arts and the Holocaust Workshop
Join us as we mark Holocaust Memorial Day by exploring how those in concentration camps used art as a means of survival. We will hear from Ela Weissberger who used art as a means of survival. Together with her mother, grandmother, her uncle and her sister, Ela was deported to Theresienstadt in February 1942. She performed the role of the cat in the Hans Krasa’s children’s opera “Brundibár” at the concentration camp. We will also find out about Marianne Grant who also credits her love of art with saving her life in the death camps and see examples of her work. Also speaking will be Morag Reid from Queens Park Church who will tell us about the remarkable Jane Haining who gave her life to help Jewish children. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of all speakers. This event is suitable for all pupils P6 – S6. Register now.
