Holocaust survivor to tell her story in Poole for memorial day event

Posted on January 21, 2023

A HOLOCAUST survivor will share her story as an annual memorial event returns to being held in-person.

An event for Holocaust Memorial Day, hosted by the Bournemouth and Poole Holocaust Memorial Committee, will be held at Poole’s Lighthouse on Sunday, January 29.

Lady Milena Grenfell-Baines MBE will be the event’s main speaker and will share her story as a Holocaust survivor.  In her talk, Lady Milena will recount her story of survival at 10 years old when her family were able to leave Prague on the last Kindertransport train with the help of Trevor Chadwick and Nicholas Winton, organisers of an operation which brought nearly 10,000 Jewish children in danger to the UK.
