HTA Students help mark Holocaust Memorial Day

On Friday 25th January two of our Year 7 students Wiktor Tyl and Julia Bloch, represented Holy Trinity Academy at Telford and Wrekin Council’s Holocaust Memorial Day service. Amongst the guests present were the Mayor Raj Metha and a host of local dignitaries representing the Armed Forces, community and faith groups from across the town. Wiktor and Julia both performed moving and beautiful readings during the ceremony on the theme of “What home means to us”. We had the privilege of hearing the life story of Dr Eve Clevenger a retired GP from Wellington whose Jewish family had escaped the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. The service was concluded with a video interview from Fatemah Rahmah. Fatemah is herself a Syrian refugee and she discussed Telford and Wrekin’s current work with the refugee resettlement program. Thank you again to Wiktor and Julia for being such wonderful ambassadors for our school. Mrs J Card – History Department
