Cambridge School students will gather together for ‘poetry concerts’ to receive feedback from the poet Michael Rosen and the historian Helen Weinstein and to share their creative work with an audience of young people who have all been inspired to compose their own pieces of writing by learning about the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. Young people have been encouraged to see a blank page as a friend and to believe that words belong to them, using their voices to not only remember the past but also using the power of words to challenge hatred and prejudice today, to reflect on values of kindness and prevention of future tragedies.
