January 27, 2015, marked the 70th Holocaust Memorial Day and the inauguration of the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation. By promoting awareness of what happened during the Holocaust, Mala hopes that we may remain vigilant against anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in society today.

Mala Tribich was born in 1930 in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland. When the Nazis invaded in 1939, Mala’s family fled eastwards but were later forced into the ghetto established in her hometown. When the ghetto was liquidated, Mala was sent to Ravensbrück concentration camp and then to Bergen-Belsen. She came to England in 1947, where she married and gained a degree, and she now works closely with the Holocaust Educational Trust, an organisation devoted to educating young people about the Holocaust and the important lessons it teaches us.
