I have organised a visit to the Holocaust Memorial Day workshop on Wednesday 31st January 2018. The morning will be spent at the Jewish Museum in North London with a focus on The Holocaust gallery which provides an interesting and enlightening insight into Jewish life and history. The afternoon will be spent at Northwood United Synagogue listening to a survivor’s story and participating in the accompanying workshop.
This trip is open to all year 9 and 10 students and would be beneficial with regards to the Religious Studies GCSE in particular. As well as understanding the historic facts relating to the Holocaust, this is an ideal opportunity for students to recognise the relationship between the Holocaust and contemporary issues such as racism, bullying and discrimination.
