A talk by Holocaust survivor Ruth Barnett

Ruth BarnettYou are warmly invited to a talk by Holocaust survivor Ruth Barnett at the Northampton Jesus Centre on Tuesday 7 October 2014, 12.30pm – 2.30pm

“There is one race and that’s the human race”
Ruth Barnett – Holocaust survivor

childRuth Barnett was born in Berlin in 1935. She escaped the Nazi regime at the age of four with her seven-year-old brother Martin on the Kindertransport, a rescue mission that evacuated refugee children out of Germany.

Budapest, Festnahme von JudenRuth’s story highlights the struggle with identity that many Holocaust survivors experienced and offers a different perspective on this period of history.

In her autobiography, Person of No Nationality, she describes the feelings of failure and worthlessness and her experiences of having to travel with a document with the words ‘Person of No Nationality’ across the top.

Her account of how her early experiences shaped her life shows how it is possible to recover from trauma and become an inspiration to others.
