Holocaust Memorial Day

We marked Holocaust Memorial Day with special assemblies in school last week. Teacher of Music, Ms Iyoha played the theme tune from the film ‘Schindler’s List’ as students arrived, and the assembly was led by Head of Sixth Form, Ms Tattum, and ended with the following prayer:
“Loving God, we come to you with heavy hearts, remembering the six million Jewish souls murdered during the Holocaust. In the horrors of that history, when so many groups were targeted because of their identity, and in genocides which followed, we recognise destructive prejudices that drive people apart. Forgive us when we give space to fear, negativity and hatred of others, simply because they are different from us. In the light of God, we see everyone as equally precious manifestations of the Divine, and can know the courage to face the darkness. Through our prayers and actions, help us to stand together with those who are suffering, so that light may banish all darkness, love will prevail over hate and good will triumph over evil. Amen”
