Children of the Holocaust at the United Nations
Our film Children of the Holocaust is being screened as part of the United Nations Holocaust Memorial commemorations in New York and at 18 centres around the world.
Fettle Director Zane Whittingham and Producer Kath Shackleton are taking part in a live question and answer session at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on the 24th January 2018.
This was part of a season of events in New York at the United Nations – it was lovely to meet everyone involved.
In addition there will be another 18 screenings at United Nations Centres around the world.
Centres include Baku, Azerbaijan; Bogota, Colombia; Canberra, Australia; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Kathmandu, Nepal; Lagos, Nigeria; Lusaka, Zambia; Manila, Philippines; Mexico City, Mexico; Minsk, Belarus; Moscow, Russia; New Delhi, India; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Pretoria, South Africa; Rabat, Morocco; Tbilisi, Georgia; Vienna, Austria and Windhoek, Namibia.
The theme of the 2018 United Nations Memorial events is “Holocaust Remembrance and Education: Our Shared Responsibility”.
“This highlights the universal dimension of the Holocaust and encourages education on this tragedy so that future generations will firmly reject all forms of racism, violence and anti-Semitism. The Holocaust was a defining point in history and its lessons have much to teach about the danger of extremism and the prevention of genocide today.”
Fettle and members of the Holocaust Survivors Friendship Association are delighted that our work is continuing to tell these important stories to people around the world.
