In addition to Helen Weinstein and the team, Historyworks has a fantastic collaborator, the renowned author Michael Rosen, who is our 'poet in residence' helping support Historyworks and the young people of Cambridge for our programme for this year's Holocaust Memorial Day theme, which is on the theme of  'TORN FROM HOME'.  Michael has been commmissioned by Historyworks to write some new poems inspired by the theme which we have arranged for voice for Cambridge's children and young people and community choirs to sing. With Michael Rosen's participation and the historians and musicians at Historyworks we will be delivering an ambitious outreach programme to introduce Holocaust education to schools in Cambridge who have not yet participated.   

HMD civic events and school workshops are delivered by Helen Weinstein and the team at Historyworks on behalf of Cambridge City Council's Holocaust Memorial Day Steering Committee.  The Musical Director for the schools programme of singing will be Mario Satchwell, our Music composer will be Bethany Kirby and our lead for Safeguarding/Child Support at events is Tizzy Faller.  To see the lyrics and melodies included in our programme for the Civic Event and suitable for Singing Assemblies in Cambridge schools, please go to:
