Holocaust Memorial Talk at Hampton School

Last Friday a group of fifteen students attended Hampton School’s second Holocaust Memorial event which remembers the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, along with all those killed in subsequent genocides.
 
There were over 300 people present including pupils, parents and local dignitaries. The event focused on Bea Green, now in her nineties, who escaped from Nazi Germany to Britain in 1939, on the Kindertransport.
 
Four of our Year 9 students have collaborated to write an account of the day.
 
Archie George: “Our evening began in the hall of Hampton Boys’ School. We walked in to see a variety of different schools all spread out across the room. On the board on the stage we were shown an old picture of a man who was clearly standing up for something he believed in. His name was Dr. Siegel and his bloodline, specifically his daughter, was the focus of the evening. We made eye-catching posters on the fascinating life and survival of Dr. Siegel and his family.”
 
Oliver Neville: “Within the workshop we made posters on The Siegel family and the important events that unfolded through their lifetime. In my group we created a timeline where we pin-pointed certain events. Once we finished our posters, they were displayed in the Hammond Theatre lobby to be seen by Bea Green (Dr Siegel’s daughter) and the Mayor of Richmond. Meanwhile, we had dinner in the Hampton canteen and proceeded to the theatre to listen to the speaker.”
 
James Kersey: “Listening to Bea Green explaining her short time in Munich and what happened to her father because he was a Jew was fascinating. She added a lot of detail that the history books don’t tend to have. We heard from the perspective of a child our age and what she has seen and how she felt. Learning about her father and how their family was torn apart by the war really was heart breaking and yet fascinating. It was a really rewarding evening for us all.”
 
Kieran Moses: “Bea Green continued her talk about the Kindertransport and where it took her. We were shown photographs of her alone on the train. She told us that she had travelled from Munich to England via Holland on trains and a ferry. She told us what her life was like after leaving Munich, whom she met and where she went after the war. She answered all our questions about her life, like how her brother joined the army here in England, how her parents escaped Nazi Germany for Peru and how she felt all the way through her experience of the Holocaust and the Nazi regime. It was a great experience and we were buzzing all the way home.”
