Adult talk delivered by Zoom: The People on the Beach: Journeys to Freedom After the Holocaust by Rosie Whitehouse

This talk takes place on Thursday 20th May, 7pm to 8pm.

Thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for this event, tickets are available at the special discounted rate of £5.

One summer’s night in 1946, over 1,000 European Jews waited silently on an Italian beach to board a secret ship. They had survived Auschwitz, hidden and fought in forests and endured death marches—now they were taking on the Royal Navy, running the British blockade of Palestine. 

In this talk, we interview Rosie Whitehouse on her book ‘The People on the Beach’, which follows the footsteps of those secret passengers, from Eastern Europe to Israel via Germany and Italy, uncovering their extraordinary stories—some told for the first time. Who were those people on the beach? Where and what had they come from, and how had they survived? Why, after being liberated, did so many Jews still feel unsafe in Europe? How do we—and don’t we—remember the Holocaust today?

Rosie is a journalist specialising in Jewish life after the Holocaust. She writes for BBC Online, the Observer, The Independent, Tablet magazine, The Jewish Chronicle, Haaretz and others. A graduate of the London School of Economics, she is an historical advisor at the Vienna-based Centropa, a Jewish history institute.

Walking in Nature 6

Walking in Nature - Dementia Friendly FREE WALK Monday 17th May 2021

This first walk is FREE on Monday 17th May 2021 11am to 12noon.

Going outside makes us feel much better, relieves stresses of everyday living and is a valuable source of vitamin D. So why not join us!

This is a Dementia Friendly pleasant guided circular walk about 0.8 miles (1.29km) for all abilities around the beautiful Waltham Abbey gardens. Join us throughout the year every other Wednesday at 11am. We meet at Epping Forest District Museum, 39-41 Sun St, Waltham Abbey EN9 1EL

We will walk through the historical town of Waltham Abbey and the grounds of the old monastery taking our time to enjoy the natural world around us. Most of the walk is on flat ground with hard paths with a short 200 m section on earth path which may be a little muddy if we have had a lot of rain and slightly uneven in places. But we can avoid this on the day if needed. Depending on the walking speed of the group and what we stop to look at, expect this walk to take an average of 45minutes to one hour.  We have walked through this route with a person affected by dementia and were guided by their suggestions to ensure those living with dementia will reap maximum benefits from this activity. They particularly commented on the joys of taking in the outside world, the beauty of sitting in the Rose Garden, observing nature and feeling the sun on their face.
