As part of Holocaust Memorial Day the Jewish Museum is hosting Freddie Knoller, a Holocaust survivor who will talk about his experiences and will be available to answer questions.
Freddie Knoller was 17 years old when the Nazis entered Austria in 1938. He illegally entered Belgium, and then made his way to Paris, France. Freddie joined the resistance in the South of France, but was betrayed and held in various camps, before being deported to Auschwitz concentration camp. Forced on a death march from Auschwitz to Bergen-Belsen, Freddie was liberated by the British in April 1945.
Find out more about Freddie's story of survival and be inspired by his positive outlook on life. To conclude the event there will be candle lighting and Kaddish.
