The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 is How can life go on?

These assemblies on Holocaust Memorial Day have been designed for students aged 7-11 (KS2), and would ideally take place on Holocaust Memorial Day itself - 27 January. 

It is recommended that you read the whole of the assembly and look through the accompanying PowerPoint presentation in advance, so that you can tailor the assembly to your students, if need be.

We have created a new assembly for KS2 which encourages students to learn about genocide. It also asks students to celebrate the culture of those who were murdered during the Genocide in Rwanda through learning a traditional Rwandan dance.
