Auschwitz survivor coming to Coventry for holocaust memorial event

Coventry Editorial 30th Jan, 2024   0

A SURVIVOR of the Auschwitz concentration camps will share her traumatic story during a visit to Coventry next week.

Mindu Hornik, 93, will be sharing her horrific experiences during the Second World War during a free event tomorrow (January 31) at Warwick Arts Centre.

The visit has been organised by the University of Warwick’s Jewish Society and aims to allow youngsters to connect with the terrors that occurred during Hitler’s regime on a more personal level.

Born in Czechoslovakia, Mindu endured the horrors of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps at the age of 12, losing her family during the Holocaust.

She has devoted much of her life to sharing her story and experiences.

Jacob Lederman, Warwick Jewish Society’s treasurer, said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is a moment for us all to remember the millions of lives lost during one of the darkest chapters in human history.

“Hearing Mindu’s first-hand account of her horrific experiences will act as a powerful reminder not only of the horrors of the past but also of the lessons we must learn from the Holocaust and the fight against discrimination and racism.”
