For many years, students from Bury Grammar School have been privileged to be invited to participate in the Lessons from Auschwitz (LFA) Project run by the Holocaust Educational Trust.
This year, Charlotte Ferguson and Alex Donaghy, two Year 12 students, were selected to represent the school.
As we remembered Holocaust Memorial Day on Sunday 27th January, it seemed fitting that they shared their experiences with the rest of the school community to fulfil the 'Next Steps' stage in their role as Ambassadors for the LFA project.
On Monday Charlotte and Alex delivered a very powerful message to the Girls' Senior school, that we all have a responsibility to work for the greater good and during our lives we will all face difficult choices, but wherever possible, we should take a stand against injustice, discrimination and prejudice whenever we encounter it.
Charlotte and Alex will present this assembly again on Monday 4th February in the Boys' Senior School.
