Soon after Holocaust Memorial Day was announced in the UK, the Scottish Executive commissioned an education pack for teaching Scottish primary pupils in the upper stages, i.e. pupils aged 10 to 12 years. Entitled 'The Holocaust: a teaching pack for primary schools,' (LTS1, 2000), this resource was distributed to every primary school in Scotland for preparation for the first national Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2001. This initiative was followed by 'The Holocaust: a teaching pack for secondary schools', (LTS, 2002a), which was distributed to every secondary school in Scotland and aimed mainly at the S1/S2 stages.
