  • Year 6 attend Holocaust Memorial Day service at St Mary's Church

    Published 14/02/17

    Extreme courage and perseverance were remembered on Holocaust Memorial Day when Year 6, wearing their “suitcases” of special objects round their necks, attended the annual service at St Mary’s Church in Saffron Walden, where vivid memories were brought to life by Ann Chadwick, a Cambridge resident whose family took in a four- year-old German girl at the time of the Kindertransport in 1939.

    Having spent some time learning in class about this traumatic period, including reading some extracts from Ann’s book, the children’s attention was held by the sensitive and thoughtful contributions from Ann and the other participants in the service. Ben, Zoe, Bluebell and Kitty were chosen to put their own questions to Ann in person and were pleased to receive a warm and personal reply from her.
