Last week our year 9 history students visited the National Holocaust Centre and Museum at Laxton, where they were able to learn and reflect about the effects and consequences of the Holocaust.

The students explored the museum and also spent time in the memorial garden. In addition the students got to listen to accounts of the atrocities from a Holocaust survivor.

Here are some thoughts about the trip from one of our students, Amy:

“The Holocaust trip was a good experience to have. It was interesting to look round the gardens to see the different memorials and tributes to those involved. It was also good to walk round the museum and it was intriguing looking at the pictures and items recovered from sites such as the death camps. Listening to the survivor was saddening but again very good to understand from a perspective such as their own. This the trip was overall a good experience and one definitely worth having.”
