Iby Knill, by David Morris

Event details

Iby Knill tells the story of her family as the threat from the Nazis closed around them in occupied Europe. Eventually, she was captured and sent to Auschwitz. Iby survived. Now, after many years’ silence she gives her account of these traumatic years. "Perhaps I survived to bear witness, to talk to you, to build bridges between people. What have I learned? What do I know? I know that human cruelty knows no bounds". (Iby Knill)
