Holocaust Survivor Talk

Holocaust talk

More than 100 St. Gabriel’s girls, parents and staff crowded into the theatre after school on 25th March to hear the personal testimony of Holocaust survivor Joanna Millan.
Joanna spoke about her experiences and gave us a broader insight into the Holocaust. Born into a Jewish family in Berlin, she was put into a Nazi concentration camp in 1943. Her parents died in the camps, leaving her orphaned. She was adopted by an English couple when the camps were liberated in 1945 and struggled with her identity for decades.
It was an engrossing and thought-provoking talk, and an incredibly valuable experience for all who attended.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
