Aratrust Young Activists and Young Explorers learning about the Holocaust

Young Activists and some of our older Young Explorers spent one of their weekly sessions looking at the Holocaust Memorial Day website www.hmd.org.uk  and discussing what they read. 

They learnt about the rise of Hitler and the racist Nazi Aryan ideology and anti-semitism, Kristallnachte, how the Nazis eliminated their opponents one group at a time, the concentration camps, the invasions, the resistance and the rescuers, and the defeat of the Nazis, liberation and the survivors.

Young Activists and Young Explorers then did their own research into different aspects of the Holocaust and produced some work in solidarity with the survivors, the rescuers, and all the victims and opponents of Hitler and the Nazis.

Aratrust is proud to post the Young Activists’ and Young Explorers’ work.

“First They Came …….”
By Pastor Martin Niemöller

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
