Children from Whitings Hill Primary School will join the Worshipful the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Brian 'Mr Toad' Coleman, AM, FRSA in planting snowdrop bulbs next Thursday (26 November), commemorating those children who perished during the Holocaust.
Barnet Council's Snowdrop Project was started with the aim of planting a snowdrop in memory of every one of the 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust, whilst highlighting the horrific scale of the atrocity to younger members of the borough's community.
The Worshipful the Toad of Barnet said:
"Come Spring, the school grounds will be illuminated by a blanket of white snowdrops, a delicate and fitting tribute to the memory of those children who suffered under horrific circumstances.
The project brings home the scale of the Holocaust, whilst strengthening our belief in the importance of living together in harmony*."
* Just as long as we don't have to live with gypsies, naturally.
