    Further Details

    Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January each year. It marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. It’s a time for everyone to pause and remember the millions of people murdered or whose lives were changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust. Although Holocaust Memorial Day will be held on Saturday 27 January our Holocaust Memorial Day Friday Focus Feature will take place on Friday 26 January 2016.

    Your visit will commence with a special Holocaust Remembrance Service in the Millennium Chapel, where candles will be lit and time taken to reflect. Our Learning Team will then take your group on a tour of relevant memorials and dedicated trees. The workshop will explore the real life stories of British people, from very different backgrounds, who all took risks and showed great courage and determination in order to save lives during the Holocaust. The workshop aims to highlight the importance of tolerance and acceptance of all demographic groups, as well as promoting British Values through the exploration of real life British Heroes of the Holocaust. This day would enhance any school’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development programme or PHSCE scheme of work aimed at KS3-5 students.
