Recently year 9 Tuxford students attended a trip to the National Holocaust Centre and Museum at Laxton, a centre dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education. Students were lucky enough to hear from two Holocaust survivors who shared their experiences of living through the atrocities.
Students looked around the museum where they viewed many artefacts providing them with a human and personal perspective on pre-war Jewish life in Europe, the rise of National Socialism, the Holocaust survival and post-war justice. They then had a tour of the memorial garden where over a 1000 roses have been planted in commemoration of the Holocaust. It was an incredibly moving and thought provoking place to visit.
