Bev Place, Rochdale Connections Trust said: “The event provided an opportunity for the group to learn more about Hitler’s rise to power and subsequent events in Nazi Germany that led to the Holocaust, alongside details about other more recent examples of genocide from across the World.

“Shoulder2Shoulder is Rochdale Connection Trust’s counter extremism programme for members of the local community who may susceptible to narratives that are intended to divide those living in our local community.

“The programme is designed to address lower level extremism that, if left unchallenged, could lead to the division and an erosion of shared values.”
