Songs for the Battle of Hogwarts

by Sonia Calzaretta ’18

Eight months from now, the turning of time will bring about the 18th anniversary of the famous Battle of Hogwarts. This was a decisive battle fought on the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry that, with the death of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, brought about the end of the Second Wizarding War.

On the second of May, 1998, more than fifty young Hogwarts students lost their lives defending what was, for some of them, the only place they knew to call home.

This playlist is in their memory. May we never forget their courage, or their sacrifice.
