Visitors were given passports and invited to embark on a journey from room to room in Dewsbury Town Hall.  Young people and adults took visitors from Hungary to Albania and back to Kirklees as they remembered the events of the Holocaust and challenged each other to learn about building bridges between communities.  This was followed by an evening civic event with the Mayor of Kirklees and Lilian Black, daughter of a Holocaust survivor, who spoke of how the Holocaust survivor community of West Yorkshire build bridges between their past experiences and the community.
