On January 27, Manchester Jewish Museum will mark Holocaust Memorial Day with two premières of musical and theatrical performances.
Based on real-life experiences and testimonies of Manchester Jewry, refugees and Holocaust survivors, they will be staged at Manchester Central Library.
Mini performances will be staged in the afternoon as a work in progress and performed in different spaces of the Music Library.
In the evening, the Museum’s commemoration continues with the northern première of Holocaust Brunch by London-based Canadian theatre maker and performer Tamara Micner.
It brings to life the true stories of two Holocaust survivors connected to Tamara and pries open an intergenerational wound to explore why we remember the Holocaust and what it is like to live in the shadows of genocide and displacement.
