Watford Grammar School for Girls students perform 'deeply moving' play in tribute to Holocaust survivors
Students paid tribute to Holocaust survivors in a "deeply moving" play to remember those killed in genocides.
Year ten pupils from Watford Grammar School for Girls performed Roman’s Other Journey - a tale about a Holocaust victim - on Wednesday January, 23 at All Saints Church, in Shenley Road, Borehamwood.
The show, written by drama teacher Androulla Gordon, was held in honour of Holocaust Memorial Day, which is on Monday.
The play formed part of a luncheon, organised by church Reverend Tim Warr, to mark those killed in genocides. Films about the Holocaust were also shown at the event.
Mayor Pat Strack said: "The girls’ emotions were challenged when portraying their victim and it came through in the performance. It was a deeply moving play.
"We were privileged for them to share it with us. We owe Rev Warr a deep debt of gratitude for stepping into the unknown and arranging the events in Borehamwood."
Rev Warr will also be holding a second Holocaust memorial service on Tuesday, January 29 at All Saints Church from noon to 2pm.
