St Benedict College Secondary Boys School Kirkop were provided with these daffodil bulbs. Students planted them back in November. Here they are blooming at our school. These yellow flowers symbolise the yellow Stars of David that Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule and were planted in memory of the one and half million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. In Malta daffodils are used instead, due to the fact that crocus plants do not survive locally.
When these plants bloom, we remember the children who died. But the beautiful flowers also remind us that, even after the most terrible events, new life begins again and we can hope that things will be better than they were before. The flowers remind us that there is still beauty in the world and hope for our future. Planting the flowers is sad, but it is hopeful too.
