Holocaust Survivor Dorit Oliver-Wolff to Raise Funds for a Local Hospice
Holocaust survivor, international recording artiste, and renowned public speaker Dorit Oliver-Wolff is giving an inspirational, educational talk at the Kings Centre in Eastboune, East Sussex. All proceeds from Dorit’s talk will go to St. Wilfrid’s Hospice in Eastbourne. An interview with Dorit will be televised on BBC1 South East Today at 6:30pm on the same evening, Monday 27th January.
Dorit’s story is a remarkable one. Against all odds Dorit completely turned her life around, from surviving as a young Jewish girl on the run from the Nazis to finding fame as a best-selling singer and television celebrity.
“Eastbourne has been very good to me, and what better way to show my gratitude than to host a fundraising talk for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. The work they do at the hospice is simply wonderful – they allow people to die with dignity and in comfort. This was not afforded to the many Jews who were killed during the Nazi regime.”
Dorit has won several awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award from Sovereign FM, and has given many radio interviews discussing her life including a recent interview by Richard Coles and Sian Williams for BBC Radio 4 . To hear Dorit tell her story in her unique style is a truly uplifting experience.
Dorit’s popular talks have both an educational and inspirational background, suitable to people of all ages, particularly those who share her strong views that nobody has the right to kill or persecute people because of differences in religion, creed, or colour. Dorit believes passionately that everybody has got the same right to life, and to live.
“Everyone has the same right for life and for living regardless of religion, creed, race or colour.”
Tickets for Dorit’s charity fundraiser are priced at just £5 per person and can be purchased on the door, at St. Wilfrid’s Hospice on Broadwater Way, or at a number of outlets in town including Trident Property on Albert Parade, Hudsons Fine Foods behind the Grand Hotel, and the Old Bank Antiques on Seaside.
Talk begins at 7pm on Monday 27 January at The Kings Centre, 27 Edison Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex. BN23 6PT.
