On Holocaust Memorial day, 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, Monteagle School hosted teacher Miriam Scharf from Stand Up to Racism. Miriam’s father escaped Poland in the 1930s, and avoided the horror of the Nazis, but many of his friends and family members sadly did not.
Miriam led two powerful assemblies for Key Stage 2 pupils. She explained that a combination of factors led to the rise of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party in Germany in the 1930s including economic crisis and racism. She stressed the importance of standing up to all forms of racism and celebrating our multiculturalism. She ended her assemblies by repeating the slogan of anti-fascists, ‘Never Again’.
