Never Again is Now - Holocaust Memorial Day in Sheffield

Mon 27 Jan 2020, 5.45pm, Hartshead Square S1 2FD

Monday 27th January 2020 marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, yet we still have genocides, wars, fascism and borders. The UK government is committing atrocities by detaining refugees in immigration centres and sending them back to the countries that they fled. The right of refugees to seek sanctuary in the UK is too often judged by their willingness to assimilate and their ability to contribute to the economy.

Meet at Hartshead Square 5.45pm to demand sanctuary for all refugees, with a vigil at Vulcan House and following discussion on the UK treatment of Jewish refugees in the 1930s and 1940s.

Organised by If Not Now Then, and Sheffield Student Action for Refugees (STAR)

Holocaust Memorial Day exhibition, films and vigil

Mon 27 Jan 2020, The Winter Gardens, 90 Surrey St. S1 2LH

As the world marks Holocaust Memorial Day (in the UK since 2001) we share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the world today. The 2020 Theme is "Stand Together", as The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust want us to reflect on 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.

"In the years leading up to the Holocaust, Nazi policies and propaganda deliberately encouraged divisions within German society, urging "Aryan" Germans to keep themselves separate from their Jewish neighbours..."

A collection of posters and artwork is being displayed in the Winter Garden, including exhibitions from local schools. Short films will be screened in the Winter Garden on Holocaust Memorial Day [Monday 27 January], from 12pm to 4.30pm, and a candlelit vigil runs from 5.45pm to 7pm in the Winter Garden.
