In 2015, when the local Somali Bravenese community had seen its centre burnt down in a hate crime, the local Jewish community quickly stepped in and invited them to pray at their synagogue.
This short film captures the community coming together again in 2018 for a bulb-planting which was dedicated to all those who’ve lost their lives to genocide.
"I had an amazing experience. Being a part of this project was a privilege and served as an inspirational experience to make little changes in the world no matter how small. It is comforting that this work is taking place and there is a groundswell for change.”
