Pomegranate Youth Theatre Group: Specially written for the event, the theatre group will be presenting a short performance reflecting on this year’s theme, ‘Stand Together’.
Their dramatization will explore how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalising certain groups, and how these tactics can be challenged by individuals standing together with their neighbours, and speaking out against oppression.
Guest speaker: Dr Carmen Levick, Lecturer in Theatre, University of Sheffield. Dr Levick has researched memorials, commemoration and remembrance and will talk about how we can remember and commemorate the Holocaust in the UK.
The event is open to all and is free of charge, but places are limited. Tickets are available from:
