Holocaust Memorial Day

Leave a comment

P, J and M attended a very poignant ceremony to mark Holocaust Day, on Friday evening at Horizon School. Many local dignitaries were in attendance, including Stephanie Peacock MP and the Lord Mayor of Barnsley. The special guest, Auschwitz Birkenau survivor Iby Knill, gave a very moving account of her life story. Iby is now over 90 years of age, but she continues to address meetings and events to talk of her experiences during the Second World War. J and M were awarded an accolade for the pieces of writing they produced to mark Holocaust Day. Many thanks to the children and their families for supporting this event.
