Holocaust Memorial Service

Mrs Aitken, Oliver and Georgia from St Mary's Cockerton attended this annual ceremony at the Dolphin Centre. The children had the honour of reading at the service which included life stories from Holocaust survivors, dance, poetry, readings and prayers. A moving occasion and an opportunity to share the importance of learning from the past and the message behind the theme for this year - don't stand by.

Oliver read this poem which was written by an unknown child in a Nazi death camp.

“From tomorrow on I shall be sad.

From tomorrow on.

Not today. Today I shall be glad.

And everyday, no matter how bitter it may be,

I shall say;

From tomorrow on I shall be sad,

Not today.”
