Mala Tribich MBE in conversation with Maurice Helfgott
8 July 2020
On Wednesday 8 July 2020 at 8.00pm, Yad Vashem UK Foundation, via Zoom, hosted Mala Tribich MBE in conversation with Maurice Helfgott, the son of Sir Ben Helfgott, Holocaust survivor and Mala’s brother.
Mala Tribich is a Holocaust survivor and educator who was liberated by the British Army from Bergen Belsen in April 1945. She was born in Piotrkow, Poland, in 1930, but when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939 her family was forced to flee eastwards. Her childhood life before the war, her traumatic wartime experiences, and her brave attempts to rebuild her life after the devastation of the war will all be discussed. Today Mala is an inspirational educator, teaching audiences of all ages about the dangers of unchecked antisemitism, race hatred, and dehumanisation.
