The official opening of the travelling exhibition, “The Promise – Eva Schloss” was held at Durban High School on Thursday 8 June.
DHS has been very fortunate to collaborate with the Holocaust Centre in bringing the travelling exhibition, The Promise, to Durban.
The official opening of the The Promise took place on 08 June at Durban High School. The guests and speakers were formally welcomed by Deputy Head Boy, Thomas Kempen. This was followed by a moving Holocaust-inspired musical piece by Ntokozo Nsibande. Ms Mary Kluk, Director of the Durban Holocaust Centre, then spoke of the value of an exhibit like The Promise in educating the youth on the value of respecting people and Human Rights. The evening concluded with a short speech by the Head Master, Mr AD Pinheiro, who spoke of a future Human Rights Centre at DHS and the possibilities of further partnerships with DHS and the Holocaust Centre to safeguard against such gross Human Rights violations, as witnessed in The Promise, ever happening again by educating our youth.
We look forward to more collaborations with The Holocaust Centre to assist with ensuring that atrocities such as the Holocaust stay relevant to the youth so they can remain the #neveragain generation.
