A capacity crowd packed in to Wellingborough Museum on Saturday to hear a talk given by a Holocaust survivor.

A total of 125 people turned out to hear Ladislaus Löb speak about his experiences at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp during the Second World War.

The event was held to coincide with Holocaust Memorial Day.

Museum chairman Robert Wharton said: “It was the fifth year that we have had a speaker at the museum.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer the opportunity for people to be able to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.

“We had a full house of people who came to hear the talk. He spoke very well – you could hear a pin drop in the room, everyone was very taken by the story.”

Following Professor Löb’s talk, members of The Castle Youth Theatre took to the stage at The Castle to perform a play inspired by the courage of Anne Frank.

Professor Löb has also written a book about his wartime experiences.
