Nineteen pupils from Years 8 to 13 have taken part in an art project to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. They worked with visiting Holocaust art educator Caroline Slifkin in a session funded by The Holocaust Educational Trust.

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 is ‘the power of words’. Pupils first looked at art created by Holocaust survivors and victims: these works express experiences of suffering, but also of building lives afterwards. The boys then used Holocaust victims’ and survivors’ work and imagery as inspiration to create their own powerful and moving pieces of memorial artwork.

Students’ creative responses will form part of Bolton School’s display at Bolton’s Holocaust Memorial on 24 January, which students have been invited to attend.

This is the third time a Holocaust art project has been run at Bolton School.
