HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY KEY STAGE 3 CONFERENCE

Key speaker Joanna Millan

Joanna was born Bela Rosenthal in August 1942 in Berlin.  At the end of February 1943, Bela’s father was taken from the streets of Berlin and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau where he was murdered on arrival. Later that year, in June, Bela and her mother were taken from their home and sent to the Terezín (Theresienstadt) Ghetto north of Prague. In 1944, when Bela was 18 months old, her mother contracted tuberculosis due to the conditions in the camp, leaving Bela orphaned and alone in the camp.
