Remembering the Holocaust

Sir John Deane's marks Holocaust Memorial Day

Today we are taking a moment to remember the millions of innocent people who were murdered in the Holocaust, as well as those who survived and their family members.


Every year Holocaust Memorial Day allows people to come together to reflect on the Holocaust and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, in the hope that there may be one day in the future with no genocide, racism or hatred. It serves as a reminder to learn more about the past, empathise with others today and take action for a better future.


Thank you to the college’s Diversitas Committee and History Society for creating the display boards in the library and by reception, and a special thank you to Progress Mentor, Olivia Katz, for sharing her family’s story of survival and escape from the Nazis.
