On Wednesday, the 7th of June, Crompton House School had a special visit from Holocaust survivor Tomi Komoly.
It was an important occasion where students had the opportunity to learn more about this sensitive topic from a person from a person who had experienced this first hand.
Students were taken on an emotional journey as Tomi shared memories of living in Hungary, discussing the harsh living conditions he and his family had to endure during the second world war, the antisemitism while living in Germany, and his move to the UK after the Holocaust.
Tomi also shared the challenges of being separated from his mother (who was captured by soldiers but eventually broke free) and the feeling of losing hope.
At the end of the session, our students had the opportunity to ask Tomi questions.
We would like to thank Tomi for visiting our school to share his experience with our students.
