Our Aims:

To create a permanent, public sculpture in Huddersfield commemorating the Jews and other minorities (1) killed in the Holocaust, and continuing genocides (2).

To develop a programme of information, education, creative arts and live events, exploring the connections between the Holocaust and the experience of persecuted minorities in the world today, especially those people who seek sanctuary in our community.
