Holocaust Memorial Day event at Bookmarks

Bookmarks presents a Holocaust Memorial Day special event:

Persecution & Resistance with Michael Rosen and John Rose
Saturday 26th January 1.30pm (booking advised), £2*

Michael Rosen
The acclaimed author, poet and former Children’s Laureate recounts his search to uncover the story of his family during the Holocaust.  Drawing on years of original research, Rosen presents a moving and personal story of exile and escape in a story that ends in the horrors of Auschwitz .

John Rose
The author and academic brings to life the story of Marek Edelman, leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. Edelman is perhaps the most remarkable figure in what was the most significant act of self-defence by the Jews against the Nazi Holocaust. His story is a heroic cry for solidarity against racism and anti-Semitism.
