We will be marking Holocaust Memorial Day in school with a variety of activities. If your child is at home, you might like to use some of the age-appropriate resources provided below. This year's theme is, 'Be the Light in the Darkness'. We will be decorating candles in school which will be used in a display. The children can write words to show how they will be 'the light' in 'the darkness'. We will talk to the children about the importance of standing together against racism and discrimination.
'We will continue to do our bit for as long as we can, secure in the knowledge that others will continue to light a candle long after us.' - Gena Turgel MBE, survivor of the Holocaust (1923-2018)
