Holocaust Remembrance Day in Cyprus


    On the Holocaust Day, children of the third grade watched the movie "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas".

    “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" is a 2008 historical tragedy film set in World War II, based on John Boyne's 2006 novel of the same name. The film is about the nine year-old boy Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution or the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country. All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Bruno’s friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.

    The children were related with the film's heroes and a lot of feelings flooded them. In the art glass the students draw beautiful paints based on the film and write about their feelings in the greek language glass
