Religious and racial hate crime has doubled in the past 5 years. The theme for HMD 2020 is Stand Together. It explores 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.
The story of The Secret, follows a Jewish family in Hungary who live through the rise of the Nazi power and the growing hatred for the Jews in Hungary. The play explores the use of propaganda, the impact of hate crime and the restrictions that are put in place to support the persecution of the Jews.
In the years leading up to the Holocaust, Nazi policies and propaganda deliberately encouraged divisions within European Countries. Today there is increasing division in communities across the UK and the world.
HMD 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – this is a significant milestone and is made particularly poignant by the dwindling number of survivors who are able to share their testimony.
