A Holocaust survivor shared her inspiring story at a multi-faith event.

Bergen Belsen survivor Mala Tribich, 87, saw her Polish village invaded in 1941 and was sent to Ravensbruck Concentration Camp before being moved to Bergen Belsen, where she contracted typhus.

The British Army liberated the camp in April 1945.

She said: "We were stripped, had our heads shaved and it seemed as it they had taken our very souls.

"I will never be able to express my gratitude to the British Army and all they did. Now I speak for all those whose voices were silenced."

Ms Tribich spoke at the tenth annual Holocaust Memorial Day observance at St Mary-at-Finchley.

The event was attended by five rabbis from the area, an iman and several Christian clergy, as well as Cllrs Brian Salinger and Ross Houston.

Revd Philip Davison, Rabbi Danny Rich and Iman Hamis Quereshe brought the event to a close with a peace, Shalom and Salaam ceremony.

Ms Tribich cut a special cake made to depict this year's Holocaust Memorial Day theme, "the power of words."

Organiser Lynn Radnedge, chairman of the Finchley Council of Christians and Jews, said: "Mala's passionate delivery was intensely moving.

"We all lit candles in memory of the millions who lost their lives in the Holocaust and in subsequent Genocides and pledged to continue to be advocates of peace, tolerance and justice in our broken world."
