Poetrywivenhoe, in association with The Wivenhoe Bookshop, starts the year with a respectful recognition of Holocaust Memorial Week. On Thursday 23 January we shall be giving readings from the anthology ‘Poetry of the Holocaust’ (edited by Marian de Vooght). These readings will, we hope, emphasise the importance of remembering. Remembering the victims and remembering the survivors through the medium of their own words.

Copies of the paperback edition of ‘Poetry of the Holocaust’ will be on sale. Proceeds of the evening will be donated to the charity Refugee Action.

Please note that this exceptional Poetrywivenhoe event will be at The Nottage, not at the RBL. (No Open Mic this time).

Thursday 23 January 2020 at The Nottage Maritime Institute, Wivenhoe Quay, 7.30 for 8.00pm. £5 at the door (students £3)

See Events page for ticketed events.
