Description

Representing the Holocaust on Screen

People in Tower Hamlets are invited to come together to remember the millions of Jews who lost their lives during the Holocaust in World War Two. 

The theme for 2019 is ‘Torn from Home’, which asks us all to consider what happens when individuals, families and communities are driven out of, or wrenched, from their homes because of persecution or the threat of genocide. 

A programme of events will be delivered in partnership with Jewish Care, Jewish East End Celebration Society (JEECS), East London Central Synagogue, UK Jewish Film, Rich Mix and the Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archive, with support from Tower Hamlets Council’s Arts, Parks and Events team and One Tower Hamlets. 

Join us for this participatory film archive workshop exploring the purpose, significance and representation of Holocaust narratives based on a selection of clips from Holocaust themed films, including archival footage. There will be viewing of clips, discussion and exchange. There will also be a display of historical imagery of anti-fascism resistance in the East End from the Tower Hamlets Local History Library collections.
Doors open 6.00pm. All are welcome but spaces are limited.
