Holocaust Memorial unveiled

We were honoured to be visited once again by Zigi Shipper, a survivor of the Holocaust on Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 June 2015. Zigi visited both Elgin Academy and Elgin High School, and talked about his experiences, including at a meeting for parents, family, friends and the public in Elgin Academy on Monday evening. Zigi unveiled a memorial stone at the front of the school, which came about due to the idea and drive of former Auschwitz Ambassadors Hayley Nicol and Mollie Anderson. The stone was donated by Gavin Tennant,  and designed and carved by Heather Griffith of Historic Scotland.
