Born Survivors: In Conversation with Eva Clarke and Wendy Holden

Eva Clarke was born at the gates of Mauthausen concentration camp, Austria, on 29th April 1945 – the day after the gas ran out. She and her mother Anka were the only survivors of their family, 15 members of whom were killed. After the war, the pair settled in the UK.

Bestselling author Wendy Holden will be discussing this unique and inspirational story with Eva Clarke, one of the babies to survive. Now 78, and living in Cambridge, she is a voice of the voiceless and, quite soon, will be among the last ever living survivors of the Holocaust.

Booking required for some events.
