PUPILS at a girls’ school have been holding performances to remember those who died in the Holocaust.

Year 13 Music Tech students from Belle Vue Girls School in Heaton created an installation to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, which takes place on Saturday.

This performances, which were held at the school yesterday, incorporated the power of words alongside music to commemorate both the victims and survivors of the holocaust.

It was made up of seven short pieces which all have an individual sentiment, meaning and representation of the Second World War.

It also included musical pieces such as Gorecki’s “Symphony 3” and Steve Reich’s “Different Trains”, as well as Holocaust survivor Iby Knill’s poem “I Was There”.

Each piece was given a modern twist by modern music technology, bringing it into the 21st Century.

The entire performance was made, edited, produced and performed by Year 13 students Aysha Latif, Rabia Mahmood and Munnazah Faizi.
