History must never repeat itself – film and talk

Holocaust Memorial day 2018 will see a film and lecture sponsored by the GCU joint unions and the Students Association. This will take place on Wednesday 31st January – in M317 at 1pm

Journey to Safety – memories of the Kindertransport is a moving  and short (26 min) film that features testimony of three individuals whose life was saved by their transport out of Nazi Germany.

Following the film, Joanna de Groot, current president of the UCU will give a short talk regarding the rise of anti-semitism, and the power of words to do this. She will also reflect on her recent visit to Bosnia with the  charity Remembering Srebrenica.

Chaired by Nick McKerrell, on behalf of the joint campus unions, and supported by the Students Association, all staff and students are welcome.
