THREE Holocaust survivors will give a talk at Hornsey Library on Wednesday.

Roman Halter, Harry Olmer and Mala Tribich will speak at the opening of a new exhibition at the gallery.

Entitled The Day of Liberation from the Camps - May 1945, it features prints, drawings and paintings by Mr Halter, who survived Auschwitz and Stutthof death camps and escaped after the bombing of Dresden.

He eventually returned to his home town of Chodecz in Poland to find that his entire family had been murdered, and that only four of the town's 800 Jews had survived.
