Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 event – Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich in conversation with Tom Palmer

Tom Palmer - After the War

Teachers and pupils, join our free online 30-minute conversation between author Tom Palmer and Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich.

Award-winning writer, Tom Palmer, author of After The War, will interview Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich from 10.30 to 11.00 on Monday 24 January 2022.

This event is part of our suite of support across that week for schools commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day 2022, which takes place on Thursday 27 January. Access free videos and worksheets to support students' writing on our resource page.

Attendees will have the chance to:

  • Hear from a world-class author and be inspired to write about this important subject.
  • Learn from Mala about her experiences and ask her questions

This event will take place as a Zoom Webinar and, although the best way to take part is live, it will remain on the National Literacy Trust as a resource video after the event.

Webinars are open to all teachers based in primary or secondary schools, public or community libraries across the UK and Club Community Organisations working in schools. The webinar is ideal to share with pupils aged 10 to 14 (Years 6, 7, 8 and 9).

Session benefits

  • Provide a unique opportunity for pupils to hear from a Holocaust survivor
  • Engage your pupils in reading and writing activities
  • Give your class the chance to submit questions to the presenters

You will be able to interact with the presenters through the chat function, but you will not be able to chat with, or see the chat from other schools.

Unless asked by the National Literacy Trust within the event as part of the event, schools will not be able to turn their camera or microphone on.*

(A recording of this event will be made available and posted on the resource page later in w/c 24.01.22.)

*If you are happy to turn the camera on and participate directly in the event, you will need to have appropriate permissions in place. We don’t mind if you can’t do this and just want to interact directly in the chat.
