Daniel narrates 2010 Holocaust Memorial Day film
Daniel has lent his voice for a short film entitled The Legacy of Hope for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. It is created for the Holocaust Memorial Day in 2010 (27th January). This short film focuses on three Holocaust victims who spoke of their survival.

From the press release:

Daniel explains his involvement:
“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.”
Carly Whyborn, Chief Executive Officer, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust:
“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.”
