Holocaust Memorial Day 2020: Stand Together

February 12, 2020

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps and extermination centres, Bromsgrove students have been working on a number of cross curricular projects. In the spirit of standing together the Secondary team have been working collaboratively to deliver a range of Holocaust themed lessons to Year 9, supported also by the expertisie of our Year 10 and Year 13 History and Politics students. This has culminated into a Holocaust Exhibition proudly presenting students art work, poetry, timelines and research projects in the Hadley Hub building. The Holocaust Memorial Day was marked through an assembly sharing the students hard work and linking these events to subsequent examples of genocide in order to share the important message of remembering these atrocities so that we can learn from the past. As the philosopher George Santayana said of the Holocaust: “He who does not learn from history is doomed to repeat it.”
