Global Awareness Leaders at HOME Theatre for the Holocaust Memorial Day 2019

Holocaust Memorial Day provides an opportunity for everyone to learn lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides, and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future. Each year’s Holocaust Memorial Day has a different theme, decided by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, as a focus for educational and commemorative events. The theme for 2019 is ‘Torn from Home’.
Nick Paul (Strategic Lead at Manchester City Council)

Torn from Home: This year’s theme asks us all to consider what happens when individuals, families and communities are driven out of, or wrenched, from their homes because of persecution or the threat of genocide.

The students were able to watch a screening of a collection of very powerful and moving short films covering both the Holocaust and the Genocide in Rwanda (1994), followed by a speaker and interactive learning session.
