‘In Conversation’: Ruth, Dorit and Rayhan – Three Women, One Hope

Thursday 8 April from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm BST

Free

Watch a recording of the event here:

Three stories, three remarkable women and one shared determination to stand up to evil.

Rayhan’s brother Ekpar disappeared in 2016 and is since held in one of estimated 500 concentration camps set up in the Chinese Uyghur region, in an attempt to eradicate Uyghur culture and people.

When she was five years old, Dorit fled the Nazi invasion of Novi Sad, only to later discover that her father and other members of her family were murdered by the Nazis.

In 1939, aged four, Ruth and her seven-year-old brother arrived in Britain on the Kindertransport. Separated from their parents and family,  Ruth and her brother lived with three foster families and in a hostel.

René Cassin, in collaboration with Burst the Bubble UK and Yet Again, invites you to join Ruth, Dorit and Rayhan as they share their stories and their hopes for humanity.

Speakers:

  • Rayhan Asat, Attorney and advocate
  • Ruth Barnett MBE
  • Dorit Oliver Wolff BEM
