A survivor of the July the 7th London bombings is to give a guest talk at the University of Wolverhampton.
Rachel North was in the first carriage of the Piccadilly line train that was blown up at King’s Cross on July 7, 2005.
Rachel, 37, is to visit the University’s City Campus on Tuesday, 26 February 2008.
In July 2002, Rachel, an advertising executive, survived a violent rape in her own home, and then, as she was recovering psychologically, she was involved in the terrifying London bombings.
Event organiser and Senior Research Fellow in Conflict and Terrorism, Professor George Kassimeris, said: “Countless stories of courage have emerged from the ruins of 7/7 but Rachel North has a more extraordinary tale to tell than most.
“Her talk, based on her book Out of the Tunnel, will be about her incredible experiences before and after 7/7; her battle - and victory - over post traumatic stress disorder and her stubborn determination to use those painful experiences to help her fellow survivors by setting up the King's Cross United support group.”
The talk will talk place from 1pm to 2pm in room MC001 at the Wolverhampton City Campus, on Tuesday, 26 February, 2008. No ticket is required to attend.
