Wendy Holden and Eva Clarke: Born Survivors

Thursday 2 Mar 2017

More than 300 people crammed without complaint into the College Theatre on Tuesday evening such was the appetite to hear the FramSoc presentation given by Wendy Holden and Eva Clarke; a tale concerning three young mothers who hid their pregnancies from the Nazis and gave birth in the unspeakable conditions of the concentration camps system.

With quiet authority they told us an extraordinary story of survival against the odds and it was both humbling and moving to grasp that one of the babies at the centre of this story, born at the gates of the dreaded Mauthausen, was Eva herself.  I think I can speak for everyone when I say it was an unforgettable evening; history itself was in our midst and, almost unbelievably, we could simply reach out and touch it.
