Headteacher’s Blog – Week 18 – Holocaust Memorial Day

January 27th, 2017

The 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day and also marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp. To commemorate this, assemblies this week have been looking at this year’s theme of ‘how can Life go on?’.

Mrs Essop, Curriculum Leader of Humanities, presented this assembly with students from Year 11, some of whom visited the Concentration camps in Krakow last year. They looked at the Holocaust but also the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.

The presentation can be viewed here.
