The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 is How can life go on?

These assemblies on Holocaust Memorial Day have been designed for students aged 11+ (KS3+), and would ideally take place on Holocaust Memorial Day itself - 27 January. 

It is recommended that you read through the whole of the assembly and look through the accompanying PowerPoint presentation in advance, so that you can tailor the assembly to your students if need be.
