Kirklees College students with their Holocaust artwork.

An art student from Batley was honoured to showcase a tribute to the Holocaust at a prestigious community event.

Rohid Qadeer was among five Kirklees College students who gave a presentation of maquette models they had made for Holocaust Memorial Day, at the event in Huddersfield Town Hall. 
The artwork represented how they imagined life in aconcentration camp to be, with the figures representing pain and suffering. 
The sculptures had to include buttons in their design – like the 6 million+ exhibition created in 2006 by artist Antonia Stowe with a sculpture made from donated buttons.

Pictured are Mark Maher, Amberr Denniss, Rohid Qadeer, Liam Lynch and Beth Lund.
