Holocaust Memorial Day

 

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, Arts Development Team delivered an open workshop at the shop unit which was formerly The Pier, on Belmont Street. This event was open to the public to contribute or just to have a look at the work in progress. The art tutor’s worked with selected Primary 7 pupils from School’s across the City on the completion of a banner which was started in the School’s last November. The art work is a collection of the children’s work, both written pieces and drawings all based around what their ancestors did in World War 2. There are some fascinating and diverse anecdotes including a girl whose family was saved by Schindler.

The public were invited to contribute to this work by jotting down their own anecdote onto a luggage label which shall be incorporated into the finished banner. Tess McLean, Education and Outreach Officer with Gordon Highlanders Museum was also there with some handling items from World War 2 (including uniform, gas masks and radio’s) as well as providing information about a recently completed piece of work Veterans on Film.
