'Humanity is in our hands' on Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, and worrying new statistics show that over a third of Londoners have witnessed a race hate crime or hate incident in the past year.

Organisers of this year's event have given it the theme 'don't stand by'.
To make Londoners aware of this, artist Clare Twomey will mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 by gifting 2,000 artworks to the public on Westminster Bridge in London.
These individual and unique hand crafted porcelain spoons were inspired by a meeting with Nisad 'Šiško' Jakupović, who survived the notorious Omarska concentration camp during the Bosnian War.
This will be the conclusion of her year-long project, 'Humanity is in our hands'.
On last year's Holocaust Memorial Day, 2,000 Londoners were invited to share their thoughts on humanity, and their replies have been inscribed on the spoons.
