The Promise Exhibition @ DHS

The Promise Exhibition

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 Promise is a thought-provoking and inspirational story of Holocaust survivor, Eva Schloss, and the tremendous loss she experienced during the attempted extermination of the Jewish population during the Second World War, the Holocaust. The exhibit allows one to walk in the footsteps of one Jewish family and their experiences of bigotry, exclusion and then persecution in Europe during the 1940s.
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.
