On 3rd May Brynteg Comprehensive School were privileged to host Holocaust survivor Eva Clarke. Mrs Clarke spoke to year nine pupils who had been studying the Holocaust as part of their Religious Studies GCSE course. All pupils were enthralled by her story of survival after being born in a concentration camp. Eva travels extensively telling the remarkable story of her parents being taken into Auschwitz where her father was killed. Her mother survived and gave birth to Eva on the death marches just as the camps were being liberated.
The event was attended by the mayor of Bridgend and MP Madeleine Moon who spoke to the audience after the talk reiterating how important it is that we all fight against hatred.
Religious Studies teacher Lynsey Morris said “It is vital that we continue to remember and teach about the events of the Holocaust so that future generations are aware of what prejudice can lead to and to work to put an end to discrimination in all forms”.
