2016 - A report from our Year 6 Councillors
Holocaust Memorial Day
by Joseph and Elena
On the 28th of January, the Yr6 school councillors (Joseph and Elena) went to the Holocaust memorial at Richard Hale with Mrs Fusi.
Holocaust was when the Nazis captured the Jews and took them to Concentration Camp to constantly work for them in a cruel way. There are sadly not many survivors around the world who have survived Holocaust. Here are some quotes from the people who have survived:
Lily Ebert: “Auschwitz was really a factory for killing and human beings used for fuel. I survived and promised myself, I will tell the world what happened”
Simone Arnold: “At school I was under more and more pressure to Heil Hitler. But I refused because in my heart I could never honour a man in this way as if he were a God who could save people. I was arrested at the age of 12.”
In the memorial we were introduced to a survivor. His name is Harry Olmer, who told his life story from when he was young till he escaped the concentration camps. At the very end of the memorial we had a minute silence to remember all our brothers and sisters who died in the concentration camps.
This was a memorable opportunity for our community to understand how important it is to remember this sad part of History and work together to make sure something like this will never happen again.
