A morning with the National Holocaust Centre and interview with a survivor.

Wow what a busy morning we have had in Year 6!

We were very lucky this morning to be able to continue with our planned visit from the National Holocaust Centre (albeit online!). Mrs Strauther was so interesting and we had so many ideas and questions to share with her.
One thing Miss Hall found particularly interesting that the German government made it illegal for Jewish people to have pets in the 1930s. Miss Hall would definitely have missed Mirren and I know Mr Kay wouldn’t have been able to part with Ralph!

Year 6 in our workshop this morning.

We managed to get a staggering 76 of you to join the call at the same time – isn’t technology amazing!

After a short break we met Trude Silman a Holocaust survivor who now lives in Leeds and who travelled to England on the Kindertransport. Trude showed us many pictures of her life and told us lots about her family and their experiences. Again, the children asked many interesting questions.

Well done to everyone for listening so well and being so respectful and engaged with both Mrs Strauther and Mrs Silman. I know you will all have taken so much away about Leo and Trude’s stories and also the importance of being an upstander on things that are wrong.
