Eva Schloss at Solihull School
Eva Schloss, MBE, Holocaust survivor, friend and posthumous step-sister of Anne Frank, will be joining us again for three poignant Holocaust remembrance events in September. These events will be centred around And Then They Came for Me, a critically acclaimed theatre production retelling the story of Eva Schloss’ journey through the Holocaust, and The Promise, an exhibition on loan from the Jewish Museum, London, telling the story of Eva’s brother Heinz Geiringer and the artwork he created whilst in hiding. Each event will also include a Q&A with Eva.
