Watch Now!



In June 1943, tonight’s very special guest joined the army at the age of 18 ½. Following some tough training in Scotland with the Black Watch he became a Technical Clerk in the 17th Advance Vehicle Company, Royal Army Ordinance Corps and soon was on a boat on route to invasion of the Normandy Beaches on Dday.  From then he fought with British Troops through Europe onto Germany and found himself at the Gates of Bergen Belsen.  Tomorrow as we celebrate 75 years since VE Day we are honoured that he has given up his time to be with us live tonight, and to top it off as a young lad he was even a member of JLGB, so this really is an absolute historic moment for us all here at JLGB Virtual. 

Ladies and gentlemen please welcome our honoured guest Mervyn Kersh.

For 125 years, young Jewish people have been discovering just how brilliant they can be and how they can make the world a better place through JLGB. Whether you're 8 or 18, whatever you want to be, join in and be your best self with us!
