Pupils from across the special school in Tameside along with a local nursing home teamed together to create a powerful art installation.

The installation is based on the story of Hannah Brady's suitcase.

Pupils were asked to choose an item that they could not live without, the results were written onto luggage tags and attached to the inside of an old suitcase, which had been covered in powerful letters exchanged during the Holocaust.

Over 300 people have been involved in this powerful installation.

Please feel free to come along and have a look at the installation, which will be exhibited in the reception area of school.
