Ensuring the Holocaust will never be forgotten

22 January 2013 by Kay

Yesterday the Museum of Liverpool hosted ‘Never Forget’, a Holocaust Memorial Event in partnership with the Liverpool Association of Jewish Refugees. It was a very moving day where holocaust survivors, including Inge Goldrein who came to Liverpool aged 8 on the Kindertransport from Vienna, told us their experiences.

At the end of the day Dr Sylvia Jayson presented a special tablecloth to the Museum of Liverpool, which she had personally embroidered with the names of 42 Holocaust survivors who came to Merseyside. It is a wonderful addition to the museum’s collections and will help to ensure that their stories are never forgotten.
