Holocaust Memorial Day is held on January 27th each year. Glengormley High has been holding a series of special assemblies to commemorate the Holocaust. These have been delivered by the school’s Holocaust Ambassadors Erin English and Natalie Montgomery. The assemblies have focused on the nature of the Holocaust and how discrimination can lead to such terrible events as we are witnessing in Darfur at present and recently in Bosnia.
The theme of Holocaust Memorial Day this year is the Power of Words. Citizenship classes have been involved in postcard writing exercises to survivors of the Holocaust from World War 2 and the war in Bosnia.
