Yoletta Nyange

Co-hosting the Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony with Simon Schama and debuting my Magen David a day after I returned from a trip to Ethiopia made me very proud. As a child, my Judaism was a lethal secret but now it is what I hold on to. I reconnected. It feels natural.

Yoletta Nyange was born in Rwanda, a third-generation Ethiopian refugee. A journalist living in Shoreditch, she is a member of West London Synagogue.
