Tauheedul marks Holocaust Memorial Day
On 27th January each year, Holocaust Memorial Day is commemorated.
Between 1941 and 1945, the Nazis attempted to annihilate all of Europe’s Jews. This systematic and planned attempt to murder European Jewry is known as the Holocaust (‘HaShoah’ or ‘The Catastrophe’ in Hebrew).
Over the course of four years, six million Jewish men, women and children perished in ghettos, mass-shootings, concentration camps and extermination camps.
Each year, 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day. 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp. To observe the event, all learners complete an activity in morning registration commemorating the loss and suffering experienced by people of Jewish faith.
Furthermore, as part of the observances, our students join learners from other schools in a special ceremony at Blackburn with Darwen Town Hall.
