On Wednesday 15 May, seven Year 10 students from Mr Selaidinakos’ History: World War II class attended the annual Schools Holocaust Memorial Service, organised by the Council of Christians and Jews. This moving service commemorated the tragic events of the Shoah and challenged us to speak out against division and uphold our shared humanity.

We were deeply moved by the personal story of Associate Professor Louis Roller, AM, PhC, BPArm, BSc, MSc, PhD, DipEd, FPS, FACPP. Born in France on 27 February 1940 to Polish Jewish parents, Louis shared how, thanks to the brave decisions of two righteous individuals who risked their lives, he, his two brothers, and his parents survived.

We pray for the victims of the Holocaust and all victims of persecution and for the strength to ensure that our shared humanity remains united, never divided.
