13 November 2018: Memories of the Minsk Ghetto

Tuesday 13 November, 6.30pm – 9pm

The Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies in partnership with The Together Plan. An illustrated talk with extracts from her recently published book ‘We Remember Lest the World Forgets’ by Debra Brunner, Co-Founder and Co-Director of The Together Plan

Memories of the Minsk Ghetto 1941–43

Debra Brunner has spent the last four years bringing into print in English the stories of the survivors of the Minsk Ghetto. These are the stories of loss, endurance and survival of 27 elderly Jewish people, the last of their generation. For the survivors of the Minsk Ghetto still living in Belarus, the publication of this volume marks a watershed. Those who perished will not be forgotten. With the awakening of Jewish life, the once whispered words of the child survivors of the  Ghetto, previously uttered only in secret, are now shared with the world.

Debra Brunner is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of The Together Plan, an organisation working with socially and economically disadvantaged Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. They build relationships between individuals, communities and organisations in the UK, Belarus and beyond, to bring mutual support and friendship. Their partnering communities support orphanages, children’s shelters, and special needs projects in wider Belarusian society.
