*UPDATE* Daniel Radcliffe Narrates 2010 Holocaust Memorial Day Film
Once more showing maturity far beyond his years and how much he cares about important issues, Dan has recorded the narration for the 2010 Holocaust Memorial Day short film, The Legacy of Hope.
The film focuses on survivors’ stories and can be watched here.
Like the first survivor in the film, I lost family in Piotrkow Trybunalski and I am in tears.
Thank you Emma, for the link.
UPDATE : In a press release from the HMDT, Carly Whyborn, Chief Executive Officer, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, said: “We are delighted that Daniel Radcliffe is once again lending his support to HMD. With this year’s theme – The Legacy of Hope – it is entirely fitting that Daniel, who is so well known amongst younger audiences, has narrated our film, which will be shown at HMD events across the UK. Through the film, people will have the opportunity to listen to the memories of survivors like Ben, Lily and Iby and think about what action they can take after HMD which will have a positive impact on their community.”
Daniel Radcliffe said, “”When I was approached to narrate this short film, The Legacy of Hope, I felt very privileged. I felt that in a very small way I was contributing to the remembrance of these tragic and horrendous events, whilst also commemorating all those people who refused to let the horrors they had lived through dictate the tone of the rest of their lives.
“The surest shield we have against future atrocities is our knowledge and our emotional understanding of what has happened in the past. The chance to help the vital work done by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust could not be turned down.”
UPDATE : as it says in the comments : If you liked the film then why not be part of The Legacy of Hope and see what you can do to build a safer future together www.hmd.org.uk
