Date: 12 April 2019

London Metropolitan University will host Hana Kleiner, a Holocaust survivor, on Monday 29 April at 2pm.

Hana, who was born in Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, in 1927, will offer her testimony to students about her experiences and open the floor up to questions and insight.

“Offering our students an insight into these kind of stories is a humbling and rare moment,” commented Dr Andrew Moran, Acting Head of International Relations and Politics at London Met.

“Stories such as Hana’s allow us to learn from the past and use those lessons to shape the future. I would actively encourage all students to attend this session and participate.”

The event has been coordinated by the Holocaust Educational Trust who educate young people from every background about the Holocaust and the important lessons to be learned for today. The Trust travel to many universities and colleges to raise awareness and understanding of the Holocaust.

Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, added: “The Holocaust Educational Trust educates and engages students from across the UK, from all communities about the Holocaust and there can be no better way than through the first-hand testimony of a survivor. Hana’s story is one of tremendous courage during horrific circumstances and by hearing her testimony, students will have the opportunity to learn where prejudice and racism can ultimately lead.

“At the Trust, we impart the history of the Holocaust to young people, to ensure that we honour the memory of those whose lives were lost and take forward the lessons taught by those who survived.”
