In her book 'Born Survivors' Wendy Holden recounts the tale of three exceptional women. Priska, Rachel and Anka were strangers to each other, but they all survived the death camps, as did their new-born babies. 65 years later the three ‘miracle babies’ met for the first time at Mauthausen on the anniversary of the camp’s liberation.

In this event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2017, author Wendy Holden will be joined by one of the ‘infant’ survivors, Eva Clarke

Please note that the recommended age for children is 13 and above due to the sensitive nature of the topic.

About Born Survivors

Born Survivors follows the mothers’ incredible journey – first to Auschwitz, then to a slave labour camp. Struggling to hide their condition as the Allies closed in, they 2343 finally sent on a 17-day train journey with thousands of other prisoners to the Mauthausen death camp in Austria.

That the gas chambers ran out of Zyklon B just after the three babies were born within days of each other, is just one of several miracles that allowed all three mothers and their infants to survive.

Against all the odds, the women brought home their babies and managed to rebuild their lives after World War II. Their miracle children - two girls and a boy named Hana, Eva and Mark - went on to have children of their own. 65 years later, having thought they were the only children born in the Holocaust ever to survive, they met the others for first time at Mauthausen, on the anniversary of their liberation.

All only children, they are now ‘siblings of the heart’ eager to share the inspirational stories of the mothers who defied death to give them life.

<![CDATA[The Promise: Eva Schloss]]> 29/01/2017 – A Holocaust tale of Love and Hope from survivor Eva Schloss]]> 29/01/2017 : A Holocaust tale of Love and Hope from survivor Eva Schloss



Join the Jewish Museum and Camden Council to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day with a witness testimony talk from Holocaust Survivor Eva Schloss.

Eva will speak about her story of survival and loss and focus on the beautiful poems her brother left hidden under the floorboards before the family was betrayed and arrested.

Eva was born in Vienna in 1929. After the Nazi invasion of Austria Eva's family fled to Belgium, then to Amsterdam where, with the help of the Dutch Resistance, they spent the next two years in hiding - Eva and her mother in one house, and her father and brother in another.  During his time in hiding, Eva's brother Heinz quelled his fears by writing poetry and painting artwork. 

Finally, though, they were all betrayed and deported to Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Eva and her mother survived but sadly Eva's father and brother perished just weeks before the liberation. Eva and her mother returned to the house where Heinz and his father had hidden, for Eva had remembered that Heinz had told her he had hidden his paintings beneath the floorboards there. Sure enough, she discovered over thirty beautiful paintings.

Eva’s moving testimony will be accompanied by a special exhibition created by the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation to illustrate the story of  her early life with her brother Heinz and his artwork. 

The evening will include a chance to see this exhibition, to hear Eva’s testimony and the opportunity to purchase signed copies of her book The Promise and other publications by Eva.

Box Office: 020 7284 7384 / admin@jewishmuseum.org.uk

Recommended age 13 and above due to sensitive nature of the event.

This exhibition is kindly sponsored by John Moshal.
