PUPILS at Pershore High School made a pledge to always remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust during a national memorial day for the mass murder.

Groups around the school commemorated the loss of life both during the Holocaust and in genocides that have taken place since World War Two.

They made their pledge by marking their fingerprint on a piece of paper closely to the person next to them.

The hope of the teachers was that as the students made their mark they would be encouraged to think about themes of loss, disappearance and memory, even if only for as long as the ink stained their finger.

The pieces of art made by the students fingerprints will be displayed in the reception area of the school.
