Holocaust Memorial Day

23/01/2017

'How can life go on?' is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2017

The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime. 

Holocaust Memorial Day is on Friday, and there will be a workshop for all Year 9s and GCSE History Year 10 pupils from 10-11am. There will be a video link up with a Holocaust survivor who will be speaking to a number of schools, and pupils will have the opportunity to ask questions about her memories of the Holocaust and how she moved on.

It's a chance for the pupils to understand why we should remember Holocaust and to ask questions to someone who actually survived it, rather than just learn about it from a teacher.
