A CAPTIVATING ZOOM TALK: The Surprising Global Legacy of Anne Frank

SUNDAY 26TH JULY, 7.30PM

How were Nelson Mandela and Audrey Hepburn’s lives influenced
by Anne Frank’s diary?

Meet Gillian Walnes Perry MBE, author of ‘The Legacy of Anne Frank’ and someone who has met many people who knew Anne Frank personally and have shared their insights with her.

Gillian explores the Anne Frank story through a new lens – that of how learning how a Jewish girl’s experiences in the Holocaust has had a redemptive and healing effect in some of the world’s most turbulent and violent regions in recent years.

Gillian is the Co-founder and Honorary Vice President of the Anne Frank Trust UK. She has been speaking, lecturing and broadcasting in locations such as 10 Downing Street, the United Nations in New York, and most recently, the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock.

Yoms still go ahead despite lock down in the form of stunning videos!

Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s annual large scale birthday celebrations and Yom Ha’ashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, are organized by Makor and usually see audiences of hundreds.

Due to the current lock down, Makor, along with The Zone and UJIA, will be producing stunning videos for both events that feature Leeds and Yorkshire community members.

The videos will be streamed on the eve of each event and will be available afterwards on Youtube.Yom Ha'shoah shoes on the danube picYOM HA'ATZMAUT 2020 IMAGE
