On Friday 19th October, the year nine students were able to listen to a lecture about the Holocaust. The speaker, Natalie, was from Zikaron, an organisation which offers professional and educational lectures and tells stories from the survivors of the Holocaust to make sure they are never forgotten.

Natalie talked about her grandfather, Samuel, who survived nine different work and concentration camps during the Holocaust. He was liberated from Bergen-Belsen in 1945 and then came to a country he had never heard of before, Sweden. In her lecture, Natalie tells a personal story of a young man whose entire world is destroyed and who survives and builds a new life in a new country against all odds.

It was a very interesting and informative lecture which made us think and further educated us on the horrible events that took place.
