Echo Eternal is a commemorative arts engagement programme inspired by Holocaust survivor testimony to promote respect and understanding between different communities.
We use the testimonies of Holocaust survivors collected by the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation to engage young people directly with living history. We use live performance, exhibition and film to commemorate and pay tribute to this history.
We work with young people in schools to inspire authentic responses to survivor testimony. The testimonies become the inspiration for the schools’ responses through artistic expression, conceived and delivered by the pupils, forming a series of survivor ‘echoes’.
