Holocaust Memorial Day – Monday 27th January 2014 ngjkfg;n

While this has not been organized or written by Hidden Perspectives it is definitely worth a read and is a worth while cause.

“Every year on 27th January, the world marks Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). HMD has taken place in the UK since 2001.

To mark the day this year, Sheffield City Council have organised a candlelit vigil with speakers on Monday 27th January, 5.30-6.30pm in the Winter Gardens. There will also be a selection of short films to view in the Activities Room at the Millennium Galleries between 1-5pm on Monday the 27th: The films will be showing on a continuous loop, so you are welcome to come along anytime during the showing, the event is free. Millennium galleries have put the HMD film information online: http://www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/whats-on/events/2014/1/holocaust-memorial-day-film-screenings


Also on Monday 27th January, the Showroom Cinema will be showing the film Hannah Arendt (2013). There will be a collection of posters displayed in the Winter Gardens to mark HMD from Saturday 25 January to Friday 31 January. As part of the display there will be an opportunity for people to write down their thoughts and reflections about their own journeys.”
