This year we have partnered with 2Simple to create a range of resources on the Purple Mash platform to encourage more primary schools to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). These online activities build on the Primary School Assembly that introduces pupils to HMD, the Holocaust and discrimination in an age-appropriate way. The resources encourage pupils to think about consequences and impact of discrimination on those targeted.
