Sheffield United: Blades players past and present feature in Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 video
Sheffield United players past and present have joined some of English football’s biggest names to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 with a powerful video encouraging people to stand up to hate.
Club legend Phil Jagielka and Dronfield-born former United loanee Gary Cahill appear in the chilling two-minute film alongside the likes of Harry Kane, Jürgen Klopp and Gary Lineker.
Today (27 January) officially marks Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The short film features images from the Holocaust alongside pictures of antisemitic graffiti, Islamophobia and a lesbian couple attacked on a London bus in 2019 to raise awareness of different forms of discrimination.
It urges people to 'stand together' against hate, rather than be passive.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Manchester City and England Women captain Steph Houghton also feature in the film.
