Year 9 experiencing the National Holocaust Museum

Trips to the National Holocaust Museum in Newark on 2 separate days in early May, gave our Year 9 Religious Studies pupils and staff, the excellent opportunity to extend their learning about the historical and religious significance of the Holocaust, and the impact it had on the Jewish people. as well as many other groups.

It also gave them the opportunity to engage with the customised experience of specialist guides.

As well as visiting the museum and experiencing the exhibits, pupils also took part in a number of workshops on Jewish identity and different responses to the Holocaust. There was much discussion over what happened, why did it happen, why does the Holocaust matter today and does anti-Jewish racism still exi st?
