Campaign Day (2)

Day 8 saw Zdenka’s testimony and Nishkam’s pledge shared across the school via an online assembly and curriculum activity.  This was also shared with parents, community and partners via a presentation and sharing of the work via the Echo Eternal Festival website.

Nishkam High School’s spiritual space was lit as part of a collective reflection and commemoration session as part of the festival activity and students were encouraged to create their own spaces for reflection.

"We will do this by always teaching Year 9 high-quality Holocaust Education which includes Zdenka’s testimony."

Zdenka is a camp survivor. She witnessed the Nazi invasion of Czechslovakia from her bedroom window. Zdenka was in several concentration camps and labour camps, including Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. She was liberated from Bergen-Belsen by the British forces.

Zdenka was given a tin ring by her first love Arno while they were both in a concentration camp. Arno did not survive, but Zdenka still has the ring.
