Students took part in a special assembly to commemorate the millions of people murdered during the Holocaust.
Year nine students from Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School were joined by the Mayor of Hyndburn, Coun Marlene Haworth, Mayoress Mrs Dorothy Berry, and Rabbi Daniel Walker, to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
Commemoration events take place across the country each year on January 27, the date when Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated by allied soldiers in 1945.
Remembered on the day are those murdered or whose lives changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust and under Nazi persecution, as well as those killed in the genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
Coun Haworth presented the Oswaldtwistle school with a commemorative plaque to raise awareness of the day and thanked the students and Rabbi Walker.
She said: “The assembly was extremely moving and thought provoking.
“Its theme ‘Don’t Stand By’ made us reflect on dark events in history and challenged us to tackle discrimination, racism and hatred.”
