Please join us online to celebrate Freddie Knoller’s 100th Birthday, as part of JW3's Survivor Enrichment programme.
Freddie and his wife Freda were regular visitors to JW3 and he lit up the room with his charisma and charm. Freddie worked with all the Holocaust Education organisations and we are delighted to be able to mark this momentous occasion.
During the Holocaust, Freddie belonged to a French Resistance group. A broken love affair led to his being betrayed and arrested and he was sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. He survived a death march ending at Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp and eventually was liberated from Bergen-Belsen.
Freddie has dedicated over 20 years to ensure that his story and the story of those who did not survive is remembered by future generations. This celebration will include words from his family and leading members of the Jewish community who work in Holocaust Education.
The evening will end with the BBC documentary "Freddie Knoller’s War" which tells his extraordinary personal story.
In partnership with The Holocaust Educational Trust, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, Association of Jewish Refugees, Jewish Care with the Survivors Centre, March of the Living UK and The National Holocaust Centre and Museum.
