Holocaust Memorial Day
To mark Holocaust Memorial Day we had the honour of welcoming Tomi Komoly back to Broughton Hall this week, Tomi is a Holocaust survivor and he came in to school to speak to pupils about his life during and after the Second World War.
"Hearing Tomi's story of the Holocaust through the eyes of a child was an inspiring and emotional experience. Also finding out the legacy he hopes his story will create of enforcing modern change of equality and tolerance was something everyone should take from the talk. Overall, it was surreal to have the opportunity to learn about his experience, but especially to be able to listen to it live, in Tomi's own words." Amelia, Year 9.
"When Tomi came into school, I felt privileged to have the opportunity to listen to his story. As a survivor from the Holocaust, he shared with us what he went through during his childhood and how difficult it was for him. This was an interesting and eye-opening experience for me and I feel lucky to have had this chance to meet him." Isabella, Year 9.
