Student to host talk at the University with Holocaust survivor

A Loughborough student will be hosting a talk and presentation this Saturday (4 May) to teach others about the Holocaust.

Alejandro Argüelles, who studies Sport and Exercise Psychology at the University, is also the Regional Ambassador for Leicestershire and East Midlands at the Holocaust Educational Trust.

He will be joined by Holocaust survivor John Dobai, who as a child alongside his mother and father, experienced a pro-Nazi Hungarian government during their time in Budapest.

The Trust aims to teach as many people about the Holocaust and, more importantly, the lessons to be learnt to prevent something similar ever happening again.

The event is free and open for all to attend, but places must be booked online (those external to the University are asked to contact Alejandro directly).

It will take place in the Edward Herbert Building on the Loughborough campus from 11.30am-3pm.
