I relate my own personal family story, how my Mother and Grandparents fled Nazi Germany as refugees from persecution, that my Great-Grandmother survived the camps and how my Great Aunt and Uncle both perished in Auschwitz. I myself have been the victim of prejudice both at school and while working professionally and I talk about how I dealt with this matter and how my views were shaped by these experiences. Contemporary issues of anti-semitism, ignorance and intolerance, challenging myths and stereotypes are also discussed.Views: 21 | Enquiries: 0
I have worked in education for over 30 years and as a public speaker/freelance educator for almost 8 years. I am passionate about my subject and have a personal family input which puts a unique spin on the topic. I have a passion for music too and I have worked in music education for over 30 years and as an orchestral percussionist and composer, with several new works to my credit during the past few years. I have a wealth of knowledge about all periods of classical music. I enjoy addressing audiences of all ages and tailor my talks accordingly.
Talks last from 50-90 minutes depending on what is required. As I include a number of photographs to illustrate my Holocaust talk, I would require the use of a laptop/PC, projector and screen.
