Year 9 took part in a Holocaust Memorial Event on Tuesday 24th January in which they considered this year’s theme, how can life go on? Students examined the nature of genocide, the role of justice, the effects of displacement and whether survivors could or should ever forgive the perpetrators of such crimes. The students were very fortunate to hear Chaim Ferster retell his experiences of how he survived seven different concentration camps. All were particuarly moved when Chaim played his violin to the audience – a hobby he has re-learnt in his later life. It was a memorable experience for all involved.
