Last week we commemorated Holocaust memorial day which is on the 27th January every year. This is the day that the largest of the Nazi death camps, Auschwitz-Birkenau, was liberated. The theme for this year was ‘the fragility of freedom’. Students participated in a SMSC session during form time. This was written by Mrs Workman and 2 Year 12 Historians Flora Rowley and Esme Sabin. They did an amazing job and getting us to have thought provoking discussions about anti Semitism and other forms of persecution. We learnt how important it is to stand up against all forms of persecution, regardless of if they affect us or not.
Below is a link about Holocaust memorial days and things that we all can do.
