Holocaust Memorial Day January 27th 2016 - Thornhill School Holocaust Memorial Day January 27th 2016

Posted by Louise Newton at 12:01PM on 27 January 2016

At this time of year everyone at Thornhill reflects upon the events of the Holocaust and ensuing genocides. We strive to learn lessons from the past to help challenge prejudice and discrimination.

Last year Thornhill School welcomed Holocaust survivor Mr Zigi Shipper who talked to a wide audience about his horrific childhood experiences during the Holocaust. Nobody could be failed to be moved by Zigi’s emotional words which included a message to us all about living our lives without any hatred.

We remember Zigi’s words as we commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2016.
