ABOUT
GEN2GEN

Gen2Gen is a non-profit educational initiative developed to highlight awareness of the injustices imposed on victims of genocide, racial intolerance and discrimination. Through educational programs Gen2Gen aims to remember the past and teach future generations about the importance of awareness, tolerance and prevention.

Gen2Gen runs a number of programs to achieve its mission:

REMEMBER ME

The REMEMBER ME program encourages young people to understand the concept of memorialisation through meeting survivors of the Holocaust. At the end of the program, the students are presented with a bracelet uniquely engraved with the name of a child who did not survive the atrocities of the Holocaust, their age and place of death and we ask the students to wear this bracelet in memory of this young victim.


GENOCIDE SYMPOSIA

A GENOCIDE SYMPOSIA is a lecture series discussing genocide and its effects which is addressed to young adults. This program engages survivors from countries such as Rwanda, Sudan as well as Holocaust Survivors from across Europe and is moderated by an expert University lecturer.

Creative arts exhibition

The CREATIVE ARTS EXHIBITION is a competition aimed at honouring genocide victims. Through various forms of art expression such as poetry, film, paint and drawing, students are asked to fulfil a brief on how to remember the Holocaust after the last survivor is gone.


Cultures without borders

CULTURES WITHOUT BORDERS is an educational initiative designed to encourage religious harmony and social cohesion through the creation of a graffiti wall by young students from different faiths and cultures collaborating with a recognised street artist. The image on the wall will evoke the message of tolerance, understanding and inclusiveness.

My sincere thanks for once again providing the Remember Me Programme for our Barmitzvah boys. Unfortunately, all the regular staff were not available on the night. However, I am pleased that the class went well.

The boys always learn a lot from the presentation, and are left with much to think about as they begin their journeys into adulthood. The bracelets are an especially meaningful momento, and a reminder to them of the responsibilities that we all carry as adult Jews.

May Hashem continue to bless you in all your endeavours.

Wishing you all a Sweet and Meaningful New Year.

With warm regards.
