It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Holocaust Survivor, Blanche Benedick. Blanche was a regular speaker at the Centre, she hoped that by sharing her story others could learn from her experiences.
Blanche was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 20th September 1933. Blanche and her family escaped Nazi persecution with the help of her best friend’s parents who bravely hid them in October 1943. They then helped Blanche & her family to arrange their escape to Sweden via fishermen’s boats. After the war, they returned to Copenhagen where Blanche trained to be a fashion designer.
In 1952 Blanche moved to England, married and raised a family.
