Holocaust Memorial Day

Students at Upton Court Grammar School commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day on Friday 27 January, by participating in a Webinar set up by the Holocaust Education Trust.   The webinar was broadcast all over England and students had a chance to write in questions for the speaker, Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich.

Students listened to Mala narrate her harrowing story.  She spoke of the horror, describing how her family members and close friends were tortured and murdered in the infamous gas chambers. She described how she managed to survive in Bergen-Belsen, and answered questions from the audience about hunger, disease, faith, and her life after the Holocaust. 

Emotions ran high as students listened to Mala’s account, giving them a renewed sense of determination that such abuses of humanity cannot be repeated in future.

Head of History at Upton Court Grammar School, Eric Rosenthal, said “I feel it is my obligation to teach students about the Holocaust because they must learn the signs of evil. I tell them tolerance and understanding start with them and that indifference is not an option."

School Principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada said “Our students enjoyed being able to hear from those with first-hand experience of the Holocaust and were moved by the stories these survivors shared.”
