Youngsters were reminded of the horror of the Holocaust with a series of activities at a Peterborough Regional College.
Pupils from a number of schools visited Peterborough Regional College as part of the Holocaust memorial commemorations on Wednesday (28 January).
Schools including The Beeches School, Heritage Park, Dogsthorpe Academy and Fulbridge Academy put on their own productions about the Holocaust, telling the story of Liane Segal, who came to the UK in 1939.
Mark Curtis, workshop leader at Small Nose Theatre Company, who ran the project, said: “We run an educational workshop with the children to explain what was going on in Europe at the time. By telling Liane Segal’s story, it brings it home to the pupils that it affected real people.”
Holocaust Memorial Day was held on Tuesday, 27, with events held around the world, including in Peterborough city centre (see photos and video) to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
