Holocaust Memorial Day - 27 January 2023

Holocaust Memorial Day - 27 January 2023

On Friday, 27 January, Felsted will observe Holocaust Memorial Day; an Internationally recognised date for the remembrance of the many who lost their lives, or had their lives significantly affected, by the various atrocities committed under Nazi rule during the Second World War. Sadly, the ‘never again’ stance taken after the Second World War has not been upheld and the UN recognises genocides have occurred in various nations since. Today, debate continues to occur over the definition of ‘genocide’ and whether more international incidents should be classed as such. 

To honour the memory of those who have lost their lives and to encourage learning and discussion, Felsted School will be making Holocaust Memorial Day and this Year’s theme: Ordinary People a focus for lessons, activities and events across next week, culminating in a special chapel service on Friday morning and a service of remembrance in the Bandstand at break.
