Holocaust Memorial Day Candlelit Vigil - 5.45 to 7pm

Monday 27th January

Every January the world has been marking Holocaust Memorial Day ( HMD ). The UK has marked HMD every year since 2001.

The aim of HMD is to share the memory of the millions who were murdered in the Nazi Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the world today.

To commemorate HMD Sheffield is holding a candlelit vigil in the Winter Garden. Each year there are a variety of speakers and performers from different communities to highlight both past and present genocide, persecution and discrimination.The theme this year is Stand Together and will focus on how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalising certain groups. A selection of short films will be screened in the Winter Garden during the day, from 12noon to 4.30pm ( pop in anytime ) and a collection of posters are on display in the Winter Gardens from 20th – 27th January.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
