The Minsk Ghetto Survivors’ Association – a longstanding partner of The Together Plan – made Belarusian TV last week, as cameramen visited an event attended by the British Ambassador to Belarus, Fionna Gibb. The country’s national TV is producing a documentary charting a day in the life of the British Ambassador, and Ambassador Gibb selected our work with survivors of the notoriously brutal Minsk Ghetto as one of her activities to be featured on the programme.
Through The Together Plan, a close relationship has been forged between the British Embassy and the Ghetto survivors. As well as the Ambassador’s attendance at WWII and Holocaust commemoration events, this friendship has seen the Ghetto survivors, now in their seventies and eighties, invited to social events at the Embassy, including most recently the Queen’s official birthday celebrations which took place last month.
The programme is due to be aired tomorrow, and we are very excited to see it!
