WB: 25/01/21 Holocaust Memorial
Holocaust Memorial Day 2021
‘Be the light in the darkness’
Holocaust Memorial Day was commemorated around the world, in a very different way this year, but we were all able to join together on the evening of the 27th to light a candle. Lathom Junior School ensured that children could participate during these trying times, whether in school or at home. HMD was highlighted in the ‘Weekly Event’. This is where children participate in a range of activities, both online and practically in school. These included, creating a memorial statue or tile, writing a reflection on a living testimony or writing a poem.
The children demonstrated tremendous empathy for the survivors of the Holocaust and for the people who died in WWII. Ayaan -Dameer in Alder Class held a minute’s silence to honour their memory which was very moving.
