10th December 2019 — A group of Bolton School Boys’ Division pupils have created commemorative artwork to honour the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. Art educator Caroline Slifkin worked with students for a whole day on this project, which was funded by the Holocaust Educational Trust.

With Caroline’s help, the boys looked at art as an act of spiritual resistance. In addition to looking at Jewish artists’ work, they also examined pieces produced by Jehovah’s Witnesses, Catholics, and Gypsies, Roma and Travellers and explored how art gave these artists strength and spirit. With all of this in mind, pupils produced moving pieces based on this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day theme: Stand Together.

The artwork will be displayed at Bolton Town Hall for the town’s public Holocaust Memorial Day service on 28 January 2020, 1.00-2.30pm.
