Holocause Memorial Day Lecture

’My Family in Exile’ with Dame Stephanie ‘Steve’ Shirley

Information technology pioneer, businesswoman and philanthropist, Dame Stephanie Shirley will give the 2016 Holocaust Memorial day lecture. ‘My Family in Exile’ tells what happened to her as an unaccompanied child refugee on the Kindertransport and of the nuclear family who all arrived in the UK in 1939. The talk will muse on the impact of her experiences to her whole life.

Her memoir Let IT Go was published in October 2012 and a Talking Book version (recorded by Dame Stephanie herself) was released in 2014. Both are available online from Amazon.

Signed copies will be available on the night.

A drinks reception will follow.
