About the Speaker

Tomi Reichental was born in 1935 in Merasice, a small village of around 700 inhabitants in Slovakia. From age four, he was not allowed to go into any public places or allowed to attend the local school.

In November 1944, his family was sent to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. He survived the camp, although 35 family members died in the Holocaust. He did not speak of his experiences for almost 60 years. As a witness to the actions of the Nazis against the Jews, he stated, “I realised that, as one of the last witnesses, I must speak out. I owe it to the victims that their memory is not forgotten.”

Tomi has lived in Dublin since 1959 and regularly talks to Irish schools about his wartime experiences.
