The Northern College students have been really busy during Student Activity sessions learning how to needle felt. For their first project they decided to create a display to commemorate the Holocaust Memorial Day.
The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust chose the 27th January as their designated day of remembrance as it marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps. The display comprises of colourful butterflies which represent the victims of this atrocious crime along with lit candles as a symbol of hope.
