We marked Holocaust Memorial Day / 27th January 2020

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) which is held on 27 January every year. It is the time to learn about the Holocaust, Nazi persecution of non-Jewish groups, and genocides that have happened since. We are learning from genocide, for a better future. Even in the UK, prejudice and the language of hatred must be challenged by us all.

Shears Academy wishes to honour the memory of ALL those murdered, and to help raise awareness we mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz -learning from genocide, for a better future
