Wednesday 27th January 4 - 5.30 pm
John Gray Centre, Haddington.  FREE refreshments will be provided.

Adam Linton-Main, a budding historian from Knox Academy, will recollect his experience of visiting Auschwitz with a talk and a mini-exhibition.
"On the 27th September I took part in a trip to the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. This trip was co-ordinated by the Holocaust Education Trust and was a truly compelling experience. I feel more awareness about Holocaust is needed and by sharing my experience with the local community, I would like to reflect on this dark period in history in hope that such atrocities may be prevented in the future."
