Downend School to represent the South West
Published on: 03 Dec 2015
DOWNEND School has been chosen to represent the South West in the national arts project ‘Flames for Humanity’s Heroes’, as part of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
The school has been asked to produce an artwork that honours those who didn’t, or don’t stand by to hatred and persecution in society. The name to inspire the piece is Hasan Hasanovic from Srebenica, who endured a 100km march through hostile territory to escape the massacre of over 7000 Muslim men and boys.
The artwork will be filmed and photographed for a film to be screened across the country on city centre Big Screens on Holocaust Memorial Day, January 27. The collection will also be physically exhibited to genocide survivors, MPs and dignitaries at the UK Commemorative Event in London.
