A forthcoming exhibition by the artist Lorna Brunstein will be of especial interest to anti fascists. Lorna’s parents were Holocaust survivors. Her mother Esther was an indefatigable campaigner to the end of her life.

 

 

Esther was a prisoner in Auschwitz during the war, as was her grandmother, who was murdered there. Esther Brunstein was a veteran anti Nazi and Human Rights campaigner, passionate about educating young people of the importance of raising awareness of the Holocaust; her father Stanislaw was an artist.  They met in the Yiddish theatre in the East End of London. Lorna’s father died in 1994 and her mother in 2017.

 

 

 

Many may remember Esther, alongside the late Leon Greenman, for boldly and bravely speaking out against the far right in the 1990s, on Anti Nazi League platforms, for instance http://uaf.org.uk/2018/01/remember-esther-brunstein-holocaust-survivor-a-great-anti-fascist/

 

 

 

Lorna is to show an  exhibition in East London, in September. Her work, as the Hundred Years Gallery says, “is an immersive multi-media installation that draws on the artist’s reflections on two recent visits to the memorial site of Auschwitz-Birkenau. This visceral piece features soil gathered from the site, specifically from the soles of shoes worn by members of the anti-fascist group she visited with. The trips were organised by the UAF (Unite Against Fascism campaign group) as part of their annual educational programme”.

UAF encourage all who can to visit and wishes Lorna all best wishes for it.
