John Hurt: Lessons not learnt from Holocaust

By Robyn Rosen, September 24, 2009

Actor John Hurt fears the world has not learned the lessons of the Holocaust.

Mr Hurt was one of the speakers at a Holocaust Educational Trust dinner in central London, making a link between events leading up to the Shoah and current economic problems.

“We’re in a situation now which is dangerous and parallels can be made to the time before the war, with the banking crises and loss of faith in the government. We love to put blame on the Hitlers and the Stalins but we need to look at ourselves and see that we are all at fault.”

UJIA admits Olmert got event invite

By Leon Symons, September 18, 2009

Israel’s ex-UN ambassador Dan Gillerman was centre stage at UJIA’s annual dinner on Monday night.

What most of the 700 guests present at London’s Hilton Hotel in Mayfair might not have known was that he was a late replacement for former Israeli premier Ehud Olmert.

UJIA admitted this week that Mr Olmert had been booked to appear as guest of honour for its biggest fundraising event of the year.

Chief executive Doug Krikler said he had been invited — and had accepted the invitation — to speak in London “some months ago”.

Ben Uri move fails

By Leon Symons, September 18, 2009

The Ben Uri, Anglo-Jewry’s leading gallery and art museum, has lost out in a bid to move to a new home in London’s theatreland.

Chairman David Glasser said that while there was “enormous disappointment” that its bid to move to the former premises of the Theatre Museum in Russell Street, Covent Garden had failed, an alternative plan would be put into action straight away that would achieve the same aim.
