Holocaust Memorial Day artwork

Posted by Peter MUIR

Holocaust memorial dayStudents from year 9 and 10 recently created their own individual artwork to remember those who passed during the Holocaust. The activity was held as a part of Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January), a national commemoration day in the United Kingdom and other countries that is also the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp by the Soviet Union in 1945.  Each DC student involved made a shoe out of clay to tell a story of those who were lost. This idea was based on piles of shoes, suitcases, clothing, glasses found in Auschwitz after liberation.
