The Crocus Project - Emma Matthews Eureka Secondary School, Kells

The Crocus Project is an online educational site from Holocaust Education Trust Ireland, to create awareness of children like Anne Frank and other victims of The Holocaust, who died in concentration camps across Europe.

Yellow crocuses are planted on school grounds to commemorate these children.

Poems, essays, pictures and posters are displayed on the website and in the classroom as part of History Lessons.

Emma Matthews, a first year student in Eureka Secondary School, Kells, Co. Meath has written a short story entitled Maria's Crocus Bouquet and this can be read on The Crocus Project website.

Emma was assisted by her teacher Ms McKenna.
