Agnes was born in Hungary and started school just at the outbreak of World War II. Many of her family were murdered in the Holocaust, together with half of million other Hungarian Jews. A series of fortunate coincidences allowed Agnes to survive the ghetto, the deportation and slave labour in Nazi concentration camps.
Over the coming months we are extremely fortunate to be teaming up with Agnes and Echo Eternal to tell Agnes’ story, and – through a series of forthcoming events – to promote respect and understanding between different communities in Sutton and the wider community.
One of the first of these events is this online Q&A with Agnes to which you are warmly invited. This will take place on the 9th of January at 5.30pm, as part of FOLIO’s campaign day during Echo Eternal’s Horizons Festival.
