This year, all the speakers are young people from five of the groups who were victims of Nazi oppression . Jewish, LGBT, disabled,black and gypsies. They will talk, in their own words, about the history of their group during the Holocaust and the discrimination they are receiving in the present day and the need to Stand Together.
