This assembly for Key Stage 2 (or equivalent) introduces students to Holocaust Memorial Day, what we are commemorating, and how we can mark it. It includes poetry and film to engage students with the day. It can be delivered on or around 27 January.
A script and presentation are included below, designed to be used together by teachers to deliver the assembly.
There is flexibility for you to include contributions from students within the assembly if they have prepared a reading, presentation or performance in advance.
The film content is embedded from YouTube, so please make sure your computer is connected to the internet.
