The centre will be open from 10.00am - 4.30pm to allow time for members of the public to look round the main exhibition and gardens before and after the talk. Please note, the Journey exhibition will be closed until 2pm due to school groups.

At age 11Arek Hersh was taken by Nazis to a small church in his hometown of Sieradz along with his family anmembers of the Jewish community. There, Arek was separated from his family and would never see them again. Arek survived his time in two ghettos and several Concentration Camps, before being liberated at age 16. Almost all of his family were murdered. Arek now shares his testimony and does everything he can to counter assertions that the Holocaust was just a ‘detail of history’.

Booking for this event has now closed.
