I’m having a public chat with Anita this Thursday in Hampstead as part of a series of Formidable Jewish Women.

Anita survived Auschwitz to become a cornerstone cellist in London’s orchestra’s and recently, a living witness at Germany’s Bundestag.

Do come along to meet an extraordinary, indomitable person.

Book here, or just come along.

It’s 3 minutes walk from Chalk Farm Station.

    I’d hop over from Paris for this if I could

  • Any chance the event could be recorded or filmed for a wider audience? She is such an inspiring person.

  • Ned Keene says:

    It would be great if you could vlog the conversation – for those of us who can’t just nip on a bus to Chalk Farm 😉

  • michael hurshell says:

    I’m sure it was wonderful. Was it recorded?

  • The View from America says:

    The most inspirational person!

  • Robert Groen says:

    The most formidable Jewish woman ever was Judith. Just ask Holofernes. Anyone after that, however worthy, was an anticlimax.
