Curator Bill Longshaw has this news of a new display and event for Hollocaust Memorial Day:

"In December the Museum of Liverpool was delighted to accept a Holocaust Memorial Book into its collection. The book, created by Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR), tells the stories of many of the children who escaped Nazi Germany in the 1930s and settled in Liverpool.

We were presented with the book at the AJR's annual Hanukkah party. It was a fantastic afternoon, with traditional Jewish food and music and it was a privilege to meets some of the refugees who settled here more that seventy years ago.

The book will be on display in the Museum of Liverpool on Holocaust Memorial Day, Thursday 26 January. On the day there will also be a talk by Eric Cohen and Guido Alis, 3-4pm in Education area 3, on the first floor of the museum."
