Holocaust Memorial Day
27 January

This resource encourages young people to consider the themes of Holocaust Memorial Day through the film Wakolda/The German Doctor (12, 2014). The assembly encourages young people to consider the pursuit and prosecution of Holocaust perpetrators, and the exploration of the subject of the Holocaust in films 72 years after the end of the World War Two.

In 1960, a travelling Doctor strikes up a relationship with a local Argentine family, in particular their daughter Lilith, a lonely 12-year-old girl who unknowingly becomes close friends with one of the world's most terrifying war criminals, Josef Mengele A.K.A ‘The Angel Of Death', the Nazi who is on the run for his crimes in Auschwitz.
