Arek Hersh - Holocaust Survivor

On Wednesday we were delighted to welcome Holocaust survivor, Mr Arek Hersh MBE to Cumbria House, Carlisle. Mr Hersh very kindly shared his experiences with 80 members of staff followed by an exhibition.

We have invited Mr Hersh back to Cumbria next year so hopefully more people around the county will get the opportunity to meet him.

Holocaust Memorial Day officially takes place on the 27 January each year. It’s a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the HolocaustNazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, RwandaBosnia and Darfur.
Mr Arek Hersh MBE attended Cumbria House on Wednesday, 24 January 2018 to share his experiences.
