Holocaust Memorial Day 2021Posted on: 27th Jan 2021
Celebrated on the 27th January 2021, Holocaust Memorial Day this year focused on ‘Be the light in the darkness’. The theme encouraged everyone to reflect on the depths humanity can sink to, but also the ways individuals and communities resisted that darkness to ‘be the light’. It is an affirmation and a call to action for everyone marking HMD, to consider different kinds of ‘darkness’.
To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, our Librarian launched an online competition open to all students in Year 7-11, where they were challenged to drawn or take a picture of something that symbolised their remembrance for what happened in 1945 on this day.
Prior to participating in the competition, students had access to online resources and a reading list that enabled them to understand what happened and why we mark Holocaust Memorial Day, today.
We look forward to announcing the winners at the end of half term.
