Book, Music & Lyrics by Elliot Davis and James Bourne

Originally produced on the West End stage by T C Beech. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with:-


Until recently I was unaware that people I knew had experienced such horrific times in their life and that they had to get over such nightmares not even imaginable to a young adult of our age.

Every day for the past four years I have talked with an old gentleman named WIlfred on the way to school, it hadn’t ever occurred to me just how old he was, or what he had done in life. In a recent conversation we began to talk about the Holocaust and the camps throughout Europe.

Then he began to tell me the story of his time in the concentration camp Bogdanovka after being captured when he was twenty years old fighting for the Soviets. He remembered each morning waking up at five and preparing for the day ahead. Sometimes it would be simple labour or doing work at the SS Commander’s House, later his job was to make sure that the other prisoners who had been shot were dead and to then push the bodies into a pit of lime.

Sadley Wilfred did not live to see the 70th Anniversary at the end of the Holocaust. This memorial is dedicated to Wilfred and the 40,000 prisoners who died at Bogdanovka in their struggle for freedom. The memorial shows a Jewish prisoner being pressed down by a Nazis shoe; this is to represent how even the great amount of pressure the Jews and prisoners were put under and to show how they did not stop fighting until the end of their lives, even the young and old.

Pupils from Form 11G, have been praised for organising a collection of food for the village Foodbank to donate to people in need. Everyone in the form was involved, but the main organisation was done by Tara H, Kieran H, Kayleigh H and Megan D. Once the food was collected by Chiltern Foodbank confirmation was received that they had collected 84 kilos of food, enough to feed 10 people for three days.

Well done to all involved.
