Walk to Remember
The History club „Memory“ organized an initiative connected with the International Day of Remembrance – 27 January.
The Students were divided into pairs and their task was to pass by different posters, sent by Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. They had to choose one of the posters and to present the feelings, the fears and the situation they were during the Nazi period in the Second World War.
In the end of the lesson students read collectively a passage by the famous book „The Night“ by the prominent Ellie Wiesel.
Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke under a silent sky. Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith for ever. Never shall I forget the nocturnal silence that deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.
