Year 9 Trip to The National Holocaust Centre

As part of their studies into World War II, Year 9 students went on a visit to The National Holocaust Centre and Museum in Newark. The National Holocaust Centre and Museum promotes an understanding of the roots of discrimination and prejudice, and the development of ethical values, leading to a greater understanding within society. It promotes respect for human rights, equal opportunities and good citizenship, which has greater resonance than ever in our culturally diverse society.

At the centre the students got to visit some of the permanent exhibits about the Holocaust in the museum as well as spending time in the Memorial Garden. In the garden there is a memorial in progress to all the young people and children who died during the Holocaust. The students were invited to place a stone on the pile in tribute to one of the 1.5 million individual children who died.


In addition the students got to listen to first hand accounts of the atrocities from a Holocaust survivor, Henry.

The students were affected by what they learnt on the day, here are some thoughts in the students own words:

“Going to the centre made me feel thankful for what I have. It has taught me that there wasn’t just Jews that got killed, but other minorities. It has opened my eyes to the choices people made during the Holocaust and how they will affect the future.”

“It made me sad to know that lots of people could have been saved if other people had helped them. It scares me to see people making the same mistakes today.”

“It was an extraordinary event, but Henry, the speaker, told us a story that I will remember for a lifetime and the information will always stick with me.”
