Holocaust Memorial Day 2019Holocaust survivor tells how he was ‘Torn from Home’ in national schools webcast.

Year 11 historians were mesmerised by the hour long webcast they watched as Holocaust survivor, Harry Shapiro, recounted his experiences to Judge Rinder. The webcast was one of several special events to raise awareness of the horrors of Nazi persecution during World War Two in advance of Holocaust Memorial day on Sunday 27th January.

Next week’s school assemblies will also focus on remembering the Holocaust. Mr Pilgrim gave us a sneak preview of his presentation. His message is clear: we all have the power to speak out against hatred, discrimination or prejudice. We can and we must.
