Brundibar Performance

On Monday, 6A took part in a workshop led by The Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre. We discussed different artefacts and why they might be precious to someone. We looked at the story of Trude, who was a Jewish refugee, we learnt that she had been forced to move from Czechoslovakia during the war and now lives in Leeds.

6K joined us to watch a matinee performance of the opera Brundibar performed predominately by children. The opera focused on two children Aninka and Pepicek who needed milk to help their sick mother. It was written by the Czech composer Hans Krasa and was intended to be enjoyed by children. Krasa was Jewish and premiered the piece secretly at a Jewish orphanage in 1942 during German-occupied Prague.
