Marking Holocaust Memorial Day

30 January 2024

To mark this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January), many of our students placed candles in their windows at home to remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust, and as a stand against prejudice in the world today.

Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau – the largest Nazi death camp – and, last week, students attended an assembly on this year’s theme, ‘Fragility of Freedom’, where they were encouraged to light candles as a mark of respect.

Thank you to all pupils who were a part of this as a school community. Below, you will see some photos of our students’ candles.
