Holocaust Memorial Day 2015

This is a link to the downloadable, cross-curricular teaching resources produced by the Holocaust Educational Trust: http://www.het.org.uk/index.php/education-general

Here is a link to the Scottish Ambassadors’ facebook page (you have to ‘like’ it to follow!): https://www.facebook.com/hetrascotland, A virtual learning community where we will be posting events to attend in Scotland, teaching activities and videos, information about the Trust’s 70 voices app with Holocaust Survivor testimonies, information about relevant films and TV programmes on this week as well as our #DontHateCreate facebook campaign:

‘#DontHateCreate is a campaign in Scotland inspired by the cultural legacy of the artists, poets and musicians imprisoned at the Terezin camp in the Holocaust. They showed how hope and human creativity can overcome adversity. Create something related to the Holocaust (eg. Art/song/poem/short-story/photography/graphic-strip/candle/etc.) OR share something already out there which you like. Post it with #DontHateCreate, copy+paste this description and tag 5 friends to raise awareness for Holocaust Memorial Day. Forfeit is to tag 10 friends. Get creative!’

Lastly, this is a 12m video I created back in 2009 with another Ambassador for the Trust, after visiting Auschwitz. It is already shown in some East Renfrewshire and East Dunbartonshire schools, you are welcome to show in your school if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pIgYBdKUvo
