Coalville CAN hosts ‘evening you will never forget’ with Holocaust survivor Ruth next month

Posted on January 28, 2023

Coalville CAN is hosting what it describes as an unforgettable evening next month at its Memorial Square venue.

An Evening With Ruth Shwiening – a Holocaust survivor – takes place on February 8 at 6pm.

It is a story of survival of the holocaust, Ruth’s journey on the Kindertransport and how it inspired her art and her life.

A Coalville CAN spokesperson said: “We are sure it will be one of those evenings that you will never forget.

Ruth arrived in England on the Kindertransport at the age of three – while her father was imprisoned in Dachau and her mother was left to desperately find a way out for the rest of the family.

“Hear the story of her life as a Jewish refugee in the UK, and how she ignited her own artistic talent that she uses to share her story and support others.

“It is part of the creative sessions at Coalville CAN.”

All are welcome and there is no charge.
