Year 6 visit to the Holocaust Centre

The visit opened with a talk, followed by a Q&A session, by an actual Holocaust survivor: Simon Winton. It was a very moving beginning to a memorable day and our children listened intently and through the questions they asked demonstrated the utmost respect and sensitivity.

This was then followed by the children embarking upon 'Leo's Journey' in which they experienced what it would have been like to be a 10-year-old German Jewish child growing up in Nazi governed Berlin in the 1930s. Leo's story posed big life questions such as: Who are we? What gives us identity? How do our choices affect others?

The trip culminated in a reflective activity in which the children were asked to place a pebble upon a large mound of other pebbles in order to symbolise and bring home to the children the shocking scale of the atrocities committed against so many innocent people during the Second World War.
