P7s Mark Holocaust Memorial Day
This week Primary Seven have been learning about the Holocaust as part of our Conflict topic. We have discussed when and how it happened; building from 1933 to 1945, the persecution and discrimination of the Jewish people by the ruling Nazis, the horror of the ghettos and camps. The question many started with, however, is still on our lips: Why?
We have learned about the experiences of ordinary Jewish children as they were bullied, evicted, transported and detained, and we have discussed how the Holocaust impacted on their lives.
Today in assembly we shared our learning and our thoughts about why we should remember the Holocaust, why it should not be forgotten at time passes. We held a minute of silence for everyone to reflect on what we have learned and to respect the memory of those that were killed.
You approached this topic maturely, seriously, sensitively and respectfully P7s -Thank you and well done!
