SCHOOL pupils from across Crosby joined together at Plaza Cinema last Friday to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.
The schools, part of the Crosby Area Partnership in Teaching and Learning (Capital), had been preparing for the service, by working on a Holocaust-themed project called What Makes a Hero?
Groups from each of the nine schools involved presented a performance based on what they had learned from the project.
Members of the Jewish community were present, including Eric Cohen and Dr John Goldsmith, who had addressed pupils at a special assembly held at Ursuline Catholic Primary School earlier in the week. The service was opened and closed by Rabbi Daniel Lieberman from Allerton Synagogue in Liverpool.
Sian Jones, a teacher from Ursuline, said: “I couldn’t be more proud of what the children and staff achieved today. It really was something wonderful.”
Capital will now bring two Anne Frank Trust UK exhibitions to Sefton in the summer, which will take place at the new Atkinson Centre in Southport.
Marian McQueen, of the Anne Frank Trust, said: “All the schools deserve the highest praise for their commitment and sensitivity.”
