7 October 2018 - Visit to The National Holocaust Centre and Museum

We have visited The Holocaust Centre and Museum (which is near Nottingham) on two previous occasions, in 2007 and again in 2013. See our page "MJF visits the Holocaust Centre."

As five years will have elapsed, we are organising another visit. Like last time, we will organise a coach from somewhere in Manchester to the Holocaust Centre and back. The precise details of the departure time and the pick up points have yet to be finalised, but the event is now open for booking.

As well as the Holocaust, the Centre also has exhibitions on the genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Srebrenica and Darfur which are remembered on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The group will also hear from Holocaust survivor John Dobai. This is usually the most moving and thought provoking part of the visit to the Holocaust Centre.

Date: 7 October 2018
Time:

We have booked time in the Holocaust Centre 12:00 - 16:00.

Driving to Nottingham takes about two hours, but we have not fixed a precise departure time from Manchester. There will be two pick up points, one in North Manchester and one in South Manchester.

The South Manchester pick up point will be the British Muslim Heritage Centre, College Road, Whalley Range, Manchester, M16 8BP.

The coach will drop off at the same points on return.

Capacity Numbers are limited to 25 people.
Food You can take a packed lunch. Also, the Holocaust Centre tea room has a small selection of snacks, cakes and confectionary and offers lunch in the form of soup and sandwiches. There is no kosher restaurant.
Cost £24 per person, covering the coach and entry into the Holocaust Centre. The £24 must be paid in advance to secure your place and is not refundable if you cancel.
Booking Please email mail@muslimjewish.org.uk to book your place. We will confirm by email and send you details of how you can pay to secure your place.
