Rights Respecting School – Articles 2, 19, 37 & 38

 The 27 January marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps. On this day each year we remember all those who died during the Holocaust and all those who have died in genocides since.

We have selected four articles to focus work on this topic around: Article 2, non-discrimination; Article 19, protection from violence; Article 37, children in detention; and Article 38, protection from war.

We have also included several activities for younger children that focus less on rights and the Holocaust explicitly and more on foundational concepts, like memory and identity, that form the basis of exploring Holocaust Memorial Day in later years.
