St Stithians College is proud to be a part of the #TogetherWeRemember Initiative - a Global 24 vigil for Genocide Month taking place today, Thursday 30th April 2020.
This will be a massive virtual gathering for healing, inspiration, and commitment to peace around the world. The South African Holocaust & Genocide Foundation, through its three independent Centres in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, will be presenting 'A Message from South Africa's Youth' from 12-1pm (South African time).
Five St Stithians Boys' College students; James Lowman, Thomas van Coller, Wanangwa Nyasulu, Daniel McAslin and James Fyfe-Hitchings will all be a part of this inspiring event, reading testimonies and names of victims of the genocide in Rwanda and the Holocaust.
There will also be three of our Girls' College alumnus, (Old Stithian Association) telling their story of fundraising in 2009 to send a Rwandan genocide survivor back to find the bodies of his parents who had been murdered, to be able to give them a dignified burial. This story is part of the permanent exhibition at the Johannesburg and Holocaust Genocide centre in Saxonworld. These inspiring Alumna are Angela Webb, Bianca Biehler and Michelle Knowles.
Please join us as #TogetherWeRemember. We thank our St Stithians College History Department, Mrs Tracey Harvey and Tali Nates of The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre for collaborating to include St Stithians College in this inspiring initiative.
