Holocaust Memorial Day

30th Jan 2018

Holocaust Memorial Day

Every year on 27th January people across the world remember the atrocities of the holocaust and of other genocides since.

Kearsley Academy pupils, during their History lessons and in SMSC form times,have been learning about the moral message of the holocaust and why remembrance is so important .

They have studied the life stories of holocaust survivors and this years theme "The Power of Words" has given the pupils the opportunity to think about how words can change lives.

All pupils have had the opportunity to write a postcard to a holocaust survivor and the best submissions will receive a personal reply from one of the survivors.
