NEXT OPEN DAYMarch 10, 2023
Sunday 26th February 2023
We are delighted to be able to advise that we will be holding our next Open Day on Sunday 26th February 2023 at Garnethill Synagogue from 2pm – 4pm.
Maria Chamberlain is the daughter of two Holocaust survivors. She was born after the war in Kraków, Poland, and emigrated with her parents to Scotland in 1958 when she was 11 years old. They settled in Edinburgh, where she still lives. Her parents initially bid her to ‘Never Tell Anyone You’re Jewish’, but eventually they relented, recognising that intimate stories collectively make history. Her book tells their stories and those of the family members who perished. Maria worked at Edinburgh University teaching and researching plant and fungal biology. Now in her retirement she still maintains contact with students as an Honorary Lecturer and Programme Secretary of the Botanical Society of Scotland.
Maria will be promoting her book.
