  • Auschwitz day visit with the Holocaust Educational Trust

    Published 10/11/17

     

    As part of the HET national initiative, every Sixth Form can send two students and one teacher to visit the concentration and death camps in Poland. This trip took place on 7th November 2017 and the purpose of the trip was to start to unravel the complex nature of anti-Semitism in Europe throughout history and how the Holocaust was not the start of such genocidal activity, but rather a culmination of centuries of maltreatment. Fundamentally, it was to remember the victims and to retell their personal stories – to see the personal nature of the Holocaust, rather than focussing on the shocking statistics. It is only when we can put names and faces to this tragedy that we can begin to humanise it.
