The Power of Words - Summoning Up The Absentees
THE POWER OF WORDS
Holocaust survivor, Eva Clarke, born in a Nazi concentration camp just days before Liberation, underlines the importance of Holocaust Education and introduces this year’s theme, ‘The Power of Words’.
SIX FOR SIX
Six candles are lit to pay tribute to the six million murdered during the Holocaust. Candles are symbolic to honour the victims of the genocides that have scarred the world in the past 100 years, and the persecutions of minorities which are still tragically ongoing today.
SUMMONING UP THE ABSENTEES
Song especially commissioned by Historyworks to mark HMD 2018, with lyrics written by the renowned poet Michael Rosen and arranged for voices by the composer, Kirsty Martin and performed by ReSound Acappella Choir & Milton Road Primary Choir.
