Three Holocaust survivors, Mayer Hersh, Norbert Barrett and Gisela Feldman, lit candles with their children and grandchildren and spoke of their recollections. Pupils from King David, Yavneh and Judith Parker from Withington Girls' School gave presentations and readings. Event organiser Joy Wolfe said: "Having a large participation of young people was rewarding."
