40 Year 9 students had the privilege of being able to take part in a remote webcast of a Holocaust survivor’s testimony organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust today, as part of our reflections for Holocaust Memorial Day.
Eve’s inspirational personal story and sentiment of not giving up and finding ways to cope with her situation was such an important message and relevant to our lives today. Eve dedicates her life, even at 90 years old, to educating others and bearing witness to the events of the Holocaust to guard against the dangers of discrimination and asked of us to ensure that we ‘don’t forget’. Her moving testimony was concluded with her very wise words of advice; ‘treat everyone respectfully and lovingly’.
Thank you to all the students who took part and for your excellent questions for Eve.
