Marking Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021

This week, students at Kirkby College will mark Holocaust Remembrance Day in their history lessons and events taking place both at the academy and through our online learning. Holocaust Memorial Day is the day for everyone to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution, and in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.

The Holocaust Centre have livestreamed a fantastic and engaging event that included talks, short films, songs, and remembrance. Students have been given the time and opportunity to engage with this subject matter, and find out why commemorating this time in history is so important.
