“…hope is possible beyond despair. The source of Jobe’s hope was memory, as it must be ours’ – Elie Wiesel.

Few were able to articulate the horrors and lessons of the Holocaust with such power, humanity and clarity of vision, as writer and survivor Elie Wiesel.
Interspersing readings of his work by actor and writer Kerry Shale, with music performed by Yiddish singer Rachel Weston, pianist Ilan Lazarus and violinist Robert Hartman, we remember the victims of the Holocaust, followed by a short commemoration delivered by Rabbi Roni Tabick and assisted by tenor Yoav Oved.
In this feature we hear from Eva Burke of JW3 and Actor Kerry Shale about the book, its resonance and the forthcoming event.
