This poem is one of the results of two workshops held by FOLIO Sutton Coldfield in January 2021, in conjunction with Echo Eternal. In these workshops we learned about and listened to Agnes Kaposi and her experience of the Holocaust. Writer Mandy Ross then turned the contributions by workshop participants into a poem which is read here by those who took part in the workshops.

This poem formed part of the light installation projected onto the clock tower at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall on Holocaust Memorial Day, 2021.

As a result of our workshops participants also created candles with their reflections on them, and put them up in their windows to “be the light”.

Our thanks go to Echo Eternal, Mandy Ross, Birmingham City Council, Sutton Coldfield Town Hall and Play and Learn Nursery all of whom supported this activities in various different ways.
