It was heartening to see such a large turnout for the Yom HaShoah remembrance this year. Candles were lit and also people took home a candle to light for those who have no one to remember them, part of the Maccabi GB Yellow Candle initiative.

We heard the personal story of Evelyne Raphael – The Hidden Child and also saw a film about Sally Noach and his amazing exploits in saving Jews, called Forgotten Soldier. Finally we saw a film with Leslie Kleinman and his Holocaust story and all the work he does now with JRoots.

A moving and powerful evening.
