Surviving the Holocaust

  • The National Archives Bessant Drive Kew, England, TW9 4DU United Kingdom (map)

Following capture by the SS in May 1943, Lady Zahava Kohn and her family spent almost two years in Nazi concentration camps. In spite of the appalling conditions they faced, Zahava and her parents survived and were released in 1945. Over 70 years after her liberation, we are honoured to invite Lady Zahava Kohn to talk about her experience in the camps. In addition to her own unique and personal account, Zahava’s daughter, Hephzibah Rudofsky, will also speak at the event, providing a second generation perspective. There will be a display of Zahava’s remarkable trove of documents, letters and photographs, alongside records from our collection.

Later Event: January 26
Live Acoustic at The Moon & Maybe
