Year 6 visit the Holocaust Centre
On Tuesday, the children had the unique opportunity to listen to Holocaust survivor Steven Mendelsson who detailed his remarkable life journey. His video testimony will serve well in deepening their knowledge and understanding of The Holocaust.
Following lunch, we entered an authentic exhibition called The Journey, and were guided through Leo’s (a young Jewish boy) personal journey in the time period in Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1938. This was an interactive experience and gave Year 6 pupils the chance to truly reflect on their own lives and the choices they make. It also encouraged the children to live without prejudice, always be kind and to always consider the impact of their actions. We also considered how there are some children in the world today who are still being treated unjustly or are in danger from war and conflict.
We’d like to thank the centre for an excellent, informative and emotional visit, and the children too for living up to our high expectations! They were a real credit to the school – well done!
