Irish Jewish Museum curator Raphael Siev has died after collapsing at the HMD commemoration at Mansion House, Dublin.

He had insisted on giving a reading at the ceremony before going to hospital.

After attending Gateshead Yeshivah and qualifying as a barrister, Mr Siev worked for the Irish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He devoted his latter years to the museum.
