RRSA Article of the Week - Holocaust Memorial Day

Hello, Next week, on 27 January, we observe Holocaust Memorial Day and remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and other genocides around the world. We have dedicated our latest pack to this special day and articles related to non-discrimination and protection from violence. We hope it will help children and young people learn about and understand past (and recent) events, while linking them to rights. This topic can be upsetting for anyone, including children and young people. Please adapt the resource as appropriate for your pupils’ age and abilities. There are activities suitable for anyone, even for young children – these are more related to understanding the importance of treating everyone fairly, even if they’re different to us.
