Holocaust Memorial Day

On Thursday 28th January, I took a group of children to attend the  Liverpool Schools’ Parliament Programme as a part of Holocaust Memorial Day at The Liverpool Town Hall. Firstly, we had a look at the Holocaust related display in Hall of Remembrance. We were welcomed by Jeff Dunn, Director of Liverpool Schools’ Parliament and then prepared to listen to some stories from survivors of the Holocaust. The main points we agreed with and took away from the experience are:
•    We will stand up for what is right and speak out against what is unfair and wrong.
•    We will try to defend those who cannot defend themselves.
•    We will strive for a world in which our differences will make no difference – a world in which everyone is treated fairly and has an equal chance in life.
The event ended with three survivors sharing their stories and this was followed by some children asking questions. It was an endearing experience and the children really enjoyed it.
