The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day this year is 'One Day'.  Every day this week, we are marking the event with a daily podcast, read by Carol Jempson, a member of the Isle of Man Jewish Community. Carol shares the stories and experiences of real people, recalling One Day in history that changed their lives.

Today, a challenging story from Darfur, as one woman shares her family's experiences under the brutal regime of the government supported militia Janjaweed; but she also shares the hope she has for the future, having found some solace and safety - and a determination to change. In her own words: "If we all speak in one voice, we can compel the international community to act to end the genocide in Darfur, and the suffering of women elsewhere in the world.”
