In January we will be remembering “Holocaust Remembrance Day” which is officially on Saturday 27th January 2018. The worst act by human kind lasted nearly 12 years from 30 January 1933 – 8 May 1945. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Adolf Hitler‘s Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews – around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe.

There will be special assembly and activities to remember the sad and needless loss of millions of innocent lives, and why we should always fight to ensure such atrocities in the name of persecution and discrimination are never repeated.
