Our short film for Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2013 Lessons learnt? focuses on a school photograph in which ethnic diversity and expressions of individuality are gradually erased.
The film, highlights the theme for HMD 2013, Communities Together: Build a Bridge, which encouraged us to guard against exclusion by making connections within our communities – and reminds us that the strongest communities are those that respect difference. The film asks us to remember the communities that were destroyed during the Holocaust and subsequent genocides and to use their memory to inspire us to make connections in our own communities today.
The film features pupils from Leytonstone School.
