Iby Knill survived the Holocaust after helping the Resistance in Hungary, being caught and tortured and transported to Auschwitz. She did not speak of these experiences for more than half a century.
Now, after her husband’s death and at the age of 91 she feels the need to explore how we might stop the continuing murder and genocide that are still happening. Her book, The Woman Without A Number, is a testament to resilience and courage. Come and hear Iby, a most remarkable woman, tell her story. 

"Perhaps I survived to bear witness, to talk to you, to build bridges between people. What have I learned? What do I know? I know that human cruelty knows no bounds". (Iby Knill)
A telling of Iby’s story will be followed by discussion of what society needs to change.

This event is a partnership between the LifFest and the new Headingley Festival of Ideas.
