VOICES OF THE HOLOCAUST
Voices provides a dynamic medium by which to teach the reality and impact of the Holocaust on real people, and to support understanding of its causes and prevent its repetition. The Charity uses a powerful verbatim play, called Kindness, which is essentially the testimony of a Holocaust survivor, Susan Pollock.
We perform the play to professional standards in schools and colleges as well as other community settings, and develop discussions through workshops and engagement especially with the history curriculum, and drama. Voices enables young people of all faiths and none to consider and grapple with the injustice and horrors of the Holocaust and to examine their own attitudes and responses to the Jewish and to other communities. Seeing and hearing this testimony presented in this way is not only powerful but impactful.
We aim to help this generation of young people to understand what happened to Jewish people in a previous generation and to use the lessons of the past to help shape a better future for all of us. Kindness embodies care, consideration and respect for others and the play and the charity seek to promote positive attitudes and understanding.
The Charity is underfunded and still quite small but with big ambitions and would appreciate your support.
