We are working on a set of European/International Lesson Plans about the consequences of the totalitarianism in the XX Century, in the WWII and in the Spanish Civil War, with emphasis on the Human Rights like the concentration camps during the Holocaust (Shoah) and the current consequences of the Spanish Civil War (Law of Historical Memory), and the resistance movement of people who thought other world and reality was possible. It means our main purpose is to make our students aware of the importance of critical thinking and political and social activism in the construction of the EU through the European History and the development of Human Rights against intolerance and totalitarianism in order to create pedagogical tools to offer a new perspective on the extermination: from Collaboration, Indifference and Resistance in response to the new rise of radical-right parties in Europe.

28th High School of Thessaloniki participates in the commemorative march "Never again"

On Sunday 15th March a commemorative march under the title “Never again” was held in Thessaloniki for the 72nd anniversary of the departure of the first train from Thessaloniki to the concentration camps of Auschwitz. Starting from the Holocaust memorial at Eleftherias (Liberty) Square more than 2000 people headed for the old train station of the city where people left flowers on the railway tracks. Our school participated in the ceremony presenting a dramatization of the poem Fugue of death byPaul Celan. The 11 students under the inspired direction of the teacher Z. Spanos managed to convey the message of the poem and deeply touched the audience.
