Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 (27th January) – The Power of Words


This year the Academy will be participating in the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust’s ‘Postcard Project’.  Students will read the story of a survivor of the Holocaust or genocide during SSP and they will be asked to think about:

  • how the life story makes them feel
  • what they have learnt that they didn’t know before
  • what they have been inspired to change in their own life after reading the survivor’s story

Students will then be encouraged to write a response to one the survivors on a postcard sized piece of paper.

Some selected students will then have the opportunity to complete a specially designed postcard, which will be returned to the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. Those students will receive a postcard response from the survivor they have written to.

Students should hand their postcard in to Miss Horth in the LRC by Friday 2nd February.
