I hope my book “After the War – from Auschwitz to Ambleside” and these virtual and streamable resources will help schools, libraries and families mark Holocaust Memorial Day – Wednesday, 27 January 2021.
The FREE resources will include a multi-part story to read in school during the week of 27th January 2021 with the National Literacy Trust

As more plans are developed for marking Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 we will add them on to this webpage here.
Last year, I was very proud to work with the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, UCL Centre for Holocaust Education and the National Literacy Trust to produce a range of resources for schools – see here.
“After the War” is suitable as a class read for children in Y6 and above, although many children in Y5 will be able to deal with its tough subject matter. More here.
Get the Book : available from your local or school library, your local bookshop, Waterstones, Amazon or support indie bookshops through Bookshop.org here.
Holocaust Memorial Day is the international day on 27 January to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi Persecution and in genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. More here.
