The Holocaust has become a defining ingredient in the Jewish collective memory. The Torah commands us ‘to remember’, because in memory exists conscience. But 75 years since the liberation of the camps, how we remember the attempt to wipe the Jewish people from the face of the earth has become deeply politicised both in the Jewish and non-Jewish world. This panel will examine the purpose of Holocaust memorialisation in all its complexities.

In Association with the Jewish Museum; Sponsored by Joanna Millan, in memory of Jerry Gotel.


Gabriel Josipovici was born in Nice in 1940 of Russo-Italian, Romano-Levantine parents. His plays have been performed throughout Britain and on radio in Britain, France and Germany, and his work has been translated into the major European languages and Arabic.

Dr. Robert Rozett is Senior Historian in the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem. Most recently, he is the author of Conscripted Slaves and co-editor of After So Much Pain and Anguish.

Sue MacGregor CBE is a celebrated broadcaster. She joined BB Radio 4 in 1967 and for 15 years was the voice of Women’s Hour.

Anita Lasker-Wallfisch survived Auschwitz as a member of the woman’s orchestra. She is one of the founding members of the English Chamber Orchestra. Anita has spent many years telling her story, mainly in Germany, as a warning for the future.

Baroness Ruth Deech, DBE QC is a crossbench peer, a member of UK Lawyers for Israel, and formerly Principal of St. Anne’s Collegem Oxford, and chair of the Bar Standards Board.
