KGV College’s History and Politics Department are hosting their annual Holocaust Memorial Week from Monday 21st– Friday 25th January 2013, as part of a European week of remembrance of those who were victims of the Nazi Holocaust and other 20th Century Genocides.

The Holocaust Awareness Group has been working hard to prepare a number of college wide events in which the college community can come together to remember the millions of men, women and children who lost their lives for no other reason than they belonged to a different race.    Events include an exhibition of photographs and accounts by those who tried to help Jewish victims of the Holocaust to escape , daily bulletin readings of first hand testimonials from those who were brave enough to speak out and the annual Holocaust Memorial Service which took place today (25th January) in the KGV Holocaust Memorial Garden.

Two KGV students, Abi Volynchook and Lizzie Oakley went to Auschwitz for the day at the start of November and will be talking about their thoughts and experiences when they represent KGV College at Sefton’s Holocaust Memorial Service to be held on Sunday 27th January 2013 at Christ Church, Lord Street.  The event, which starts at 1.30pm, is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
