Our theme-specific series of lesson plans and assemblies are designed for anyone who wishes to commemorate HMD in the classroom, in an assembly, or in an education setting and are suitable for primary, secondary and SEN students.

These resources will inspire, support and encourage those who wish to mark HMD – whether you are a experienced or not – by providing classroom activities, PowerPoint presentations, poems, film clips and suggestions for further reading, all linked to the theme of Journeys.

You and your students will be encouraged to take a step on your own Journeys, to show your support for Holocaust Memorial Day, through a deeper understanding of the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides.

This year there is also a dedicated lesson plan and assembly on the genocide in Rwanda, to mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide.

SEN

For HMD 2014 the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is asking students to think about Journeys. 

Many types of journeys were made during the Holocaust and subsequent genocides: forced journeys, journeys of escape, journeys of rescue, journeys of return. The SEN resources help students to identify the role people’s understanding of difference played in these journeys, whether for good or for ill and reinforces the idea that it is important to understand those who are different to ourselves. 

SEN - Resources for HMD 2014


The SEN assembly resource provides a way for you to support your students in putting on an assembly which talks about why an understanding of difference is so important.
 
 

The SEN Journeys of Discovery resource looks at students’ personal journeys as well as the journeys of the people featured in our Life Stories Students will be supported in understanding their own differences and the differences of others.
