The event will include puppetry and performances from refugees and friends involved in the Collect Your Belongings project as well as candle lighting and reflections from Holocaust survivor Iby Knill, local authority and faith leaders. Many of the contributions were photographed and filmed in homes in Kirklees, Bradford and Leeds during lockdown. We thank everyone for helping to make the event possible.
The event will also be available to watch on youtube after 27th January .
"I was there in the darkness of the Holocaust. Walk towards the light and take people with you."
