On Thursday 8th June we were privileged once again to welcome Zigi Shipper a Holocaust survivor to our school. He shared his experiences with Year 9. Here is what one year 9 pupil had to say about the event.
The Holocaust survivor – Zigi Shipper
“It was really inspirational and Zigi’s story was very saddening: he was a polish Jew who was brought up by his grandparents and when war came he was first placed in a ghetto and then transported to a number of different camps including Auschwitz-Birkena and Stutthof where he faced many problems one of which was hunger. His Testimony was very fascinating and is like nothing else I’ve ever heard. He seemed like a very brave man who had a great message of “love not hate”. I’m so glad we got this amazing experience although some of his stories were quite sad. It was also horrid to think that the Holocaust wasn’t actually very long ago and the people who are still alive today faced those traumatic events.”
Merryn Year 9.
