Holocaust Memorial Day

Thursday 27 January 2022

12pm to 3pm

Every year on Holocaust Memorial Day the museum offers free entry and a programme of activities to commemorate the Holocaust and those who died in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.

Explore artwork created by students from University of Portsmouth and Mayville High School, inspired by Holocaust literature. At 12.15pm hear Dr. Christine Berberich, Reader in Literature, introduce the exhibition and discuss the process of enabling students to uncover the story of the Holocaust for themselves. The exhibition is open from 12pm to 3pm.

From 12.30pm to 1.30pm discover the unique and fascinating experiences of Walter and Herta Kammerling. Their son Peter will share the story of their separate journeys from Vienna as children on the Kindertransport and how they went on to make their lives together.

Tickets to Peter’s talk are free but must be booked in advance. Click here to book: Walter and Herta Kammerling tickets
