19 January 2024

QUAD in Derby will be hosting a special event and films to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2024.

Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration Event 2024 will be an evening of commemoration and reflection by communities that have found sanctuary and safety from persecution in Derby. A selection of poignant, moving and inspiring performances on this year’s theme, `Fragility of Freedom’. This year’s programme includes spoken word, poetry, traditional songs, music and dance from Derby’s Ukrainian, Iranian, Roma, Jewish and Bosnian communities and more; featuring traditional Iranian santoor music, Ukrainian singers of opera and song, Roma history and song, Bosnian dance, Holocaust poetry, and Hoverla, Derby’s award-winning Ukrainian music and dance ensemble. This year’s keynote speech focuses on one man’s journey from extreme conflict and danger to hope and safety, and the rebuilding of the Bosnia-Herzegovina community since arriving and settling in Derby 30 years ago after the Bosnian war. Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration Event will take place on Thursday 25th January from 7:30pm. All tickets are Free.

One Life, is the true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London broker who rescued 669 children from the Nazis in the months leading up to World War II. After visiting Prague in 1938 and finding families who’d escaped from Germany and Austria, living with little or no food or shelter, and under threat of Nazi invasion and immediately realised it was a race against time. Fifty years later, haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England; until the BBC television show, ‘That’s Life!’, surprises him by introducing him to some surviving children – now adults. This acclaimed and deeply moving film starring Anthony Hopkins continues in QUAD until 25th January. Normal cinema ticket prices apply.

20 Days In Mariupol is set on the eve of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a team of Ukrainian journalists enter the strategic eastern port city of Mariupol. During the subsequent siege and assault access to electricity, food, water, and medicine are severed, and the team, the only international journalists left, struggle to cover the war atrocities and to transmit their footage. Eventually surrounded by Russian soldiers, they shelter in a hospital, unsure of how they’ll escape. Ukrainian filmmaker and journalist Mstyslav Chernov offers a window into the practices of conflict zone reporters and an unflinching, anguishing account of the 20 days he and colleagues Evgeniy Maloletka and Vasilisa Stepanenko spent covering events in Mariupol. 20 Days In Mariupol (certificate 18) will be introduced by a member of Derby’s Ukrainian community and screens on Saturday 27th January at 3pm. Normal cinema ticket prices apply.

These events and films are held to mark Holocaust Memorial Day organised annually in association with Derby’s HMD group, part of a series of events, for more details please visit: www.hmd.org.uk/
