The Crocus Project at the Secondary School Pio Baroja

In 2008 The Holocaust Educational Trust of Ireland provided the IES Pradolongo, with 200 yellow crocus bulbs to plant in autumn in memory of the one and a half million Jewish children and thousands of other children who died in the Holocaust. This term The Pradolongo shared the bulbs with us at the IES Pio Baroja. Next year it will be us who will find a new partner to work together about part of our History.

The yellow flowers we have planted at our school,  recall the yellow Stars of David all Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule.

The activity presents an opportunity to introduce our students to the subject of the Holocaust. It is a tangible way to stimulate discussion and create awareness about discrimination.
