EVENTS ARE HELD WITH THE CO-OPERATION OF THE EMBASSY OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC
ONLINE LECTURE - The Low-Beer Story behind Schindler's List and Villa Tugendhat in the Czech Republic
A talk by Daniel Low-Beer, a grandson whose surviving relatives never returned to their homeland
Wednesday 26th May 2021, 6pm, on Zoom.
Before the Munich Agreement and the Nazi horrors descended on Czechoslovakia, Jews were central to the cultural and economic life of Brno. The Low-Beers were industrialists, textile producers, diplomats, movers and shakers, who were building the new republic after WW1. Some managed to escape, many perished in concentration camps, but none has come back.
His father was smuggled to Britain as a toddler, and now Dr. Daniel Low-Beer and the City of Brno, proud of the Low-Beer legacy, are working on reconciliation.
