Holocaust Memorial Day

We took part in the annual Holocaust Memorial Day service at  the Herbert E Brooks Memorial Garden in Orsett Road.  KS2 school councillors  representing the school sang Shalom before laying pebbles in memory of those murdered in the holocaust.  Holocaust Memorial Day is marked every year on 27th January as this is the date that Soviet soldiers came across the previously unheard of Auschwitz concentration camp where more than a million of the six millions Jews killed by the Nazis were either gassed or worked, starved and tortured to death.
