Hannah Lewis is to hold a talk on Holocaust Memorial Day at Chiswick Library this week

The talk takes place on  Monday 18 January from  6.30 - 7.30pm.

Hannah Lewis was born in 1937 in Wlodawa, Poland. In 1943 Hannah and her family were rounded up and forcibly marched to a labour camp in a village called Adampol. Her mother was shot dead but her father, who joined the partisans, survived as did Hannah. She was finally liberated in 1945 by a Russian soldier who picked her out of a trench dirty and very hungry.  

She came to live in London with relatives in 1949. She married and had four children and eight grandchildren.

These days Hannah visits schools and universities using photographs to tell her story, enabling people to fully appreciate the impact of the Holocaust.

Admission is free but places are limited so you are advised to book through Chiswick Library.
