We are a registered charity based in Chichester and dedicated to advancing the education of the public in the history and experiences of the Holocaust and other genocides.
We have worked to mark Holocaust Memorial Day with a variety of activities, including screenings, talks and concerts. Notably, we have been proud to stage Howard Moody’s opera PUSH.
To mark the anniversary of the day the Belgian resistance stopped the XX Convoy and Simon Gronowski escaped, the performance video below was released, featuring casts from all four productions of PUSH. The performance is also intended as a tribute to all our key workers who are putting themselves at risk to help everyone else in the extraordinary times we find ourselves in now. 150 singers and musicians have recorded themselves in their living rooms singing the finale “Ma Vie n’est que Miracles”. The final scene of PUSH is the moment when all the voices come together to express optimism in a dark world.
“Simon’s story brings us together – his bravery as a child, the courage of his mother and his personal journey that enables him to express optimism”Howard Moody, Composer of PUSH
