Five hundred people attended a talk by Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich MBE in Petersfield.
In a powerful and vivid talk at Churcher’s College, Mala shared childhood testimony from the Second World War.
Mala described how she was forced into a ghetto, how her family members were rounded up and killed, and she shared stark memories of the concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen from where she was finally liberated. Mala says horrific images of the camp are permanently ingrained in her mind.
Petersfield Community Radio brings you Mala Tribich’s talk in full, together with questions from students of Churcher’s College and and introduction from history teacher Miss Swindells.
The event raised more than £1,000 for the Holocaust Education Trust.

The district’s trees
and woodlands will be in safe hands after nearly 40 people signed up
to become tree wardens at a meeting which attracted more than 100
people to the Festival Hall’s Rose Room.
The meeting, looking
for volunteers, was organised by East Hampshire District Council and
the Tree Council, and included information on what the role entails
with talks by experts, including TV gardener Pippa Greenwood.
By the end, 38 would-be
tree wardens had signed up for the scheme and a Tree Warden Steering
Group was set up.
Dr Andy Moffat,
voluntary coordinator, Jon Stokes, Tree Council director, and Jamie
Gargett, EHDC’s arboricultural manager, will now meet to discuss
training events for tree wardens, and the new recruits will be
introduced to their own parish or town council.
Cllr Ingrid Thomas,
EHDC’s Neighbourhood Quality Portfolio Holder, said: “We are so
pleased that so many people attended the meeting, it just goes to
show how passionate people are about our trees, woodlands and our
“There’s still a
lot of work to do and we are still calling for more volunteers, so if
you are interested in working in your local community and being a
voice for our trees then sign up to the scheme.”
Petersfield Community Radio’s Beth Svarovska attended the meeting and her report includes interviews with some of the speakers and attendees.
For more information about becoming a tree warden contact EHDC arboricultural officer Kevin Peters on Kevin.Peters@havant.gov.uk or 023 92 446 485.

Chandni Narvekar is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher based in Petersfield with more than 2,300 hours of teaching experience. Yoga has been an integral part of her life. Growing up in India, the principles and practise of yoga were present all around her, whether it was doing asanas (postures) or learning to chant in Sanskrit and Hindi. After moving to America, Chandni started practising Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow yoga.
Hear her interview with the Bod Pod’s Dawn Clare where she explains the principles behind yoga and meditation, and some of her remarkable life experience.
