Two students from our Head Girl Team had the privilege of experiencing the 2020 Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration at Belfast City Hall.

Tomi Reichental gave the key note speech. We were very privileged to host a talk by Tomi in October, in St. Mary’s. His honest testimony was astonishing and had everyone in attendance with him as he walked us through what life had been like for him during this horrendous time.

St. Mary’s High School is a partnership school in the Holocaust Education Programme. As part of this initiative two of our students were invited to speak at the event. This was a huge honour and both girls were very humbled by their experience. indeed, this was a humbling experience for all the young people involved. 

Tomi’s aim is to educate people about what happened during the Holocaust so that we can remember the people who died in it and to take action so it never happens again.
