Gifts in Memory, Tributes, Collections
Donate in memory
Making a donation in the memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. Your donation will be used to develop new learning sessions for children and adults, acquire new collections and testimony, support vital conservation work, fund creative work and research or provide survivor support. If you would like your donation to go towards a specific area of our work or collections, please let us know by sending an e-mail to email@example.com and we would be happy to discuss how your gift can best support our activities.
You can create a fundraising page to collect donations in memory of a person or a family whom you treasure. You can do this with MuchLoved or JustGiving, making it possible for friends and family to put up personal messages. For more help and guidance please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gift a collection
Holocaust Centre North has a growing collection of original Holocaust-era archive material, photographs and objects donated by survivors and their families. We collect original material relating to the lives of refugees and survivors of the Holocaust who made their homes in the north of England. We aim to preserve this material for the future and make it available for education and research. Contact us if you have a collection that you would be interested in donating to us.
I wanted to support the efforts of the Holocaust Centre North, but also to remember Lilian Black who was the driving force behind the exhibition centre and who did so much to continue the legacy of her father Eugene, a survivor of several concentration camps. I miss Lilian, and supporting the Holocaust Centre North is a way to perpetuate her memory too. As the number of living survivors of the Holocaust diminishes it is more vital than ever that their story is told in a manner that future generations will be able to access. The hope is that this will empower our descendants to recognise the signs of irrational hatred and prevent such a tragedy ever happening again.
‘I decided to donate my family’s papers to Holocaust Centre North because of the professional team’s clear determination to use collections to make a difference in the modern world, their creativity and fresh approaches. I have known HSFA for nearly 20 years and I am confident that they will tell my story to the next generations with care, accuracy, and empathy.’
‘Our mother, Iby Knill may well be associated first and foremost with being a Holocaust survivor and witness. However it is important for us that she, despite her suffering, will also be remembered as a resiliant and giftet human being with major contributions to many areas of activity and diciplines. Contributions to the HSFA help to keep her memory, and the memory of others alive so that they may be an example for future generations.’
