We were delighted to welcome the newsreader and former winner of Strictly Come Dancing, Natasha Kaplinsky, as the guest speaker at the Kinder lunch at the New North London Synagogue on Monday 3 March.

Natasha, who has recently been appointed to the Prime Minister's Holocaust Commission, spoke movingly about her appearance on the genealogy programme, Who Do You Think You Are?, for which she was taken to South Africa and Belarus to trace her family's history.

Natasha was joined by representatives from the Prime Minister's office who collected the opinions of Kinder on what should form the focus of the Holocaust Commission's work.

As well as finding time to chat to individual Kinder, Natasha also spoke to some Year 6 pupils from the Akiva school who had the chance to meet Kinder and hear their experiences. To read the report the school published on the event click here.

Rabbi Wittenberg from NNLS presented Natasha with a copy of his book, Walking with the Light: From Frankfurt to Finchley.
