This assembly on Holocaust Memorial Day has been designed for students in Years 5 and 6, aged nine to 11, and would ideally take place on Holocaust Memorial Day itself - 27 January. It explores the themes of HMD through the life story of child survivor Joan Salter.
It is recommended that you read the whole of this assembly and look through the accompanying PowerPoint presentation in advance, so that you can tailor the assembly to your students, if need be. Please note that because this assembly is aimed at younger students. There is only one mention of the Holocaust, in addition to that it is for Holocaust Memorial Day.
