LA FLAG SCHOOL – Holocaust Remembrance Day
29 Gennaio - 9 Febbraio
On January 27th, 12 countries worldwide will mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, also called Holocaust Memorial Day. This global observance honors the memory of the Holocaust victims and acknowledges the immense loss during World War II.
Learning about our past and what caused it can stop the same thing from happening again. It’s really important for all of us to know these stories so that we can care about others and take responsibility for our society.
In kindergarten and class 1 we have told stories and made crafts and drawings that had as main characters some black birds, the same ones we use to tell the children about the coldest days of winter. The message was: “Every Bird is a Bird, as Every Child is a Child”.
In class 2 we used yellow origami butterflies flying over wool barbered wire and left the following message behind: “I will write Peace on your Wings and You will Fly All Over The World”.
In class 3, 4 and 5 we explored the experience of some concentration camp survivors, reflecting on some of their thoughts.
